Guy Pearce is set to go all Ebenezer Scrooge on us in an upcoming BBC miniseries adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.

Also starring Joe Alwyn, Stephen Graham, Charlotte Riley and Andy Serkis, the three-part miniseries has been adapted from the Dickens original by Steven Knight, the writer who gave us Peaky Blinders.

The tale has been told many a time in many a way, and this one seems to be going for more of a horror-tinged, nightmarish vibe. Here’s the trailer:
