Happy future holidays, everyone: Bill Murray is doing a televised Christmas special.
Variety has announced that the star will perform a series of classic carols in a program directed by Sofia Coppola, and it all sounds very, well, them.
“It’s not going to be live,” Murray told Variety of the project. “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.”
“We’re working on a Christmas special,” Coppola confirmed. “Not sure when it will air, but my motivation is to hear him singing my song requests.”
