is getting into the holiday spirit. The actor told Variety he will sing classic Christmas carols for a television special shot by his Lost in Translation director, Sofia Coppola.
“It’s not going to be live,” Murray explained. “We’re going to do it like a little movie. It won’t have a format, but it will 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.”
Further details are unavailable, but Coppola confirmed the project was moving forward. “We are working on a Christmas special,” she said. “Not sure when it will air, but my motivation is to hear him singing my song requests.”
