Bill Murray and Sofia Coppola Re-Teaming for TV Christmas Special, or Something

EDIT

Paramount Pictures

Bill Murray has been well-established throughout pop culture as a legendary eccentric, whose next feats might well include emerging from your bowl of soup, or taking a flamethrower to your next karaoke jam, so what's next? Why, a TV yuletide special with 'Lost in Translation' director Sofia Coppola, featuring the erstwhile 'St. Vincent' crooning Christmas carols, of course!

We'll let Variety handle explanation of this one, as the actor said of his upcoming project "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."

Huh. Alright then. Any clarification, Ms. Coppola?

We’re working on a Christmas special.Not sure when it will air, but my motivation is to hear him singing my song requests.

Okay. Will the project, in fact be connected to 'Ghostbusters 3,' er...'Lady Ghostbusters?' 'New Ghostbusters?' Do we have a name for this, yet?

No one responds. I've asked this question to my ceiling fan, with hope the words will float toward Murray, at whatever sushi bar he's led a conga line through this week. Bill Murray singing Christmas carols, everybody! Start sending in your requests right now!
