What if Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit) decides to direct and adapt Charles Dicken novella "A Christmas Carol"?

How would it turn out for you?

    That would be fabulous (in every sense of the word), of course.

    But, as someone lucky enough to see Patrick Stewart in his one man (Yes,

    one man) "Christmas Carol", it might be a let-down.

    Stewart---alone on a bare stage--could (and did) suggest the iconic Fezziwig's party.

    I would hope that instead of having Scrooge wimp out at the end, he tells the three ghosts to go to Hell, fires Cratchit, and makes millions screwing people on the price of Christmas items.

    I imagine he might want to revisit his roots and do a "bad taste" interpretation.

  • He'd make it a three part, nine hour snorefest, turn all the characters into unconvincing CGI montrosities and change the ending.

    If he does what he did with 'The Hobbit' he will make it a 4 act space opera while ignoring the best bits of the story.

    Well, what if he does? Nobody can tell how it would turn out. Why ask?

    Great, but only if Gandalf plays Scrooge so that, throughout the film, he can go around screaming "YOU SHALL NOT PAAAASS!" at everyone.
