Bill Murray and Sofia Coppola Reuniting For Christmas Special

Magic manifest Bill Murray has confirmed overnight that he intends to reunite with his Lost In Translation filter selector Sofia Coppola for a one-off TV special in which he’ll stare listlessly down the barrel of a camera and sing classic Christmas carols. Merry fucking Christmas, everyone.
Per an exclusive report in Variety, to whom Murray broke the news, the special is “not going to be live [but] 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 confirmed news of the project, stating, “We’re working on a Christmas special. Not sure when it will air, but my motivation is to hear him singing my song requests.
This Christmas time, make it Suntory time; BYO party shirt, ennui and melancholy Roxy Music vibes.
