Comedic director David Zucker's next film will be based on the Charles Dickens classic novel, A Christmas Carol. According to Moviehole, Zucker's version will take place on the 4th of July instead of Christmas.

In the untitled comedy, Scrooge is visited by three spirits and taken on a patriotic journey to see America in a new light. To date nothing has been announced as far as who will be starring in the Zucker comedic satire. The untitled comedy will no doubt be timed with the release of Robert Zemeckis's own version of A Christmas Carol.

Filming for the untitled Zucker comedy will begin next month.
