There can never be enough Christmas Carol remakes, right?

Ice Cube

According to Deadline, Universal Pictures has picked up the script Humbug, written by Todd R. Jones and Early Richey Jones, and will star Ice Cube (Ride Along, Straight Outta Compton) in the lead role of Scrooge. 

It doesn't come as a huge surprise to hear this film is a more contemporary retelling of the classic Charles Dickens' classic novel about a wealthy, yet bitter, old man named Ebenezer Scrooge who is visited by the ghosts of Christmases past, present and future. 

Ice Cube will also be producing the film alongside Jeff Kwatinetz with Todd R. Jones and Early Richey Jones co-producing as well.
