The first photo (albeit not a real good one) from Robert Zemeckis “A Christmas Carol”, featuring Jim Carrey as Ebenezer Scrooge, is online.
(And don’t forget to turn right around and come back here after you’ve seen the pic…)
Zemeckis shot the film using â€œperformance capture/Disney digital 3-Dâ€ animation, a continuing evolution of techniques he introduced in â€œPolar Expressâ€.
The technology provides a playground for the chameleon-like Carrey, who will act the character of Scrooge through the periods of his life, as well as the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future. Zemeckis wrote the script specifically with Carrey in mind, and the actor said yes straight away.
