Charles Dickens' 1843 novella -- about the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge being visited by ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future -- has been adapted numerous times, with a number of productions taking creative license with the property, such as Bill Murray's 1988 comedy Scrooged and 1992's The Muppet Christmas Carol.

Ferrell's Gloria Sanchez, Reynolds' Maximum Effort and Mosaic are producing the remake, along with Anders and Morris.
