Bill Murray To Sing Christmas Carols For Upcoming Special
  |  @   |  

You know what’s missing in your life right now? A Christmas special in which Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day star Bill Murray sings classic carols to you. Obviously!

Murray revealed to Variety his intentions to star in the special, which will see him reuniting with his Lost in Translation director Sofia Coppola. A movie that scored her an Academy Award for Best Writing, and both Murray and Coppola Oscar nominations for Best Actor and Best Director respectively.

Click on over to the other side to see what Murray and Coppola had to say about the project.

Details are scarce at the moment, but Murray briefly described the special:

“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 later confirmed the special, 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.”

Murray can next be seen in St. Vincent, a movie that will offer fans who have never heard him sing a little taste of the actor’s skills when he belts out Bob Dylan’s “Shelter From the Storm” during the end credits.
