Variety reports that the actor will be joining with his Lost in Translation director, Sofia Coppola, for a TV Christmas musical special. The first thing I thought about when I saw this news was the live TV production of A Christmas Carol in the movie Scrooged.
Murray and Coppola are still trying figure sit all out, and there’s not much information to share yet. Murray did have this to say, though,
“It’s not going to be live. We’re going to do it like a little movie. It won’t have a format, but it’s going to have music. 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 added her two cents, saying, “We’re working on a Christmas special. Not sure when it will air, but my motivation is to hear him singing my song requests.”
