Murray Christmas: Bill Murray and Sofia Coppola Are Making a Christmas Special

October 14, 2014


Giving America the gift of a communal, unlikely Bill Murray story we can finally all believe, Bill Murray is going to visit our home and sing us some Christmas carols. Variety has confirmed that Murray will star in a televised holiday special that will exist at the previously-unknown intersection of the end of Scrooged and the karaoke part of Lost in Translation. Sofia Coppola will direct the event; as she explained, "We're working on a Christmas special. Not sure when it will air, but my motivation is to hear [Murray] singing my song requests."

Elaborating on the things this will and will not be/have, Murray said, "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." It seems that while Murray adamantly refuses to follow-up Ghostbusters 2, he has no problem at all following up Kathie Lee Gifford: We Need a Little Christmas.
