Oldman in A Christmas Carol
Gary Oldman is apparently going to be in the next production of A Christmas Carol according to a rumour on the Interflab.
The next Christmas Carol is a Robert Zemeckis version that will use...yes you guessed it, more of his unnecessary and very creepy motion capture technique.
Jim Carrey is already cast in the film, along with the excellent Bob Hoskins, and word is that Carrey will be playing multiple roles through the magic of motion capture and his acting ability. He'll play Scrooge, and the ghosts of of Christmas past, present and future.
Although it sounds great casting, I still can't bring myself to like the motion capture style, I find it gets in the way of the story as you look at the effects and they continually catch your eye for not being quite right.
