Bill Murray and Sofia Coppola reunite for Christmas musical

It was just announced that Bill Murray will reunite with his “Lost in Translation” director Sofia Coppola for a carol-singing Christmas TV special.

Not much is available in the way of details but the actor told Variety, “we’re going to do it like a little movie. It won’t have a format, but it’s going to have music.” Adding that “it’s not going to be live”, Murray suggested, cryptically: “It will have texture. It will have threads through it that are writing. There will be prose … it will have a patina, style and wit to it. It will be nice.”

Coppola apparently confirmed the project will be a Christmas special, saying: “My motivation is to hear him singing my song requests.”
