FX has a new adaptation of “A Christmas Carol” that is sure to send shivers down your spine. Guy Pearce stars as Ebenezer Scrooge in this retelling of the classic Christmas story. Only this time, it’s a much darker, adult take.

The show is being developed by “Serenity” screenwriter and director Steven Knight in a team-up with FX and BBC, according to The Wrap. It will also be helmed by “The Awakening” director Nick Murphy under Tom Hardy and Scott Free’s production banner, Hardy Son & Baker.

It also stars Andy Serkis as the Ghost of Christmas Past, Charlotte Riley as the Ghost of Christmas Present, Jason Flemyng as the Ghost of Christmas Future, among others.

The story remains true to the original Charles Dickens tale -- Scrooge is a rich, bitter curmudgeon of a capitalist who hates everything that Christmas represents. Through various trips through time with the help of several Christmas ghosts, he learns to not only respect Christmas but become a beacon of the Christmas spirit itself, giving to those who are impoverished.

“Tonight you will not sleep,” Serkis’ Ghost of Christmas Past says to Scrooge.

According to Variety, Knight said the film “will respectfully present what we believe to be a timely interpretation of a timeless story.” However, it is clear from the trailer it will also have a much darker and chilling tone.

"A Christmas Carol" premieres Dec. 19 on FX.
