Hugh: Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds Teaming Up for Christmas Special on Apple TV+
I know it’s only mid-October, but some big news broke regarding what is likely to be a monster Christmas special. Apple has spent big bucks on acquiring a new live-action musical based on the Charles Dickens classic “A Christmas Carol”. Both Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds are on board as producers and stars of the special, and both stand to make a sizeable amount. Each of them are likely to make over $25 million for their involvement. Before blowing their competitors out of the water, Apple was reportedly in a bidding war with Netflix, Paramount Pictures, and Warner Bros. There’s no word yet on a release date, but it’s sure to be a big attraction for Apple’s upcoming streaming service, Apple TV+.
