THE MAN WHO INVENTED CHRISTMAS Casts Dan Stevens & Christopher Plummer

by on

Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) and Christopher Plummer have joined The Man Who Invented Christmas based on the book by Les Standiford.



The book, published by Crown in 2008, begins in October 1843, when Dickens was broke and distressed with his previous three books having failed. Rejected by his publishers, he set out to write and self-publish a book he hoped would keep his family afloat, and after six fever-pitched weeks, he created A Christmas Carol.

Dan Stevens will play Dickens with Christopher Plummer set to play Scrooge.
