A Bill Murray Christmas

Sometimes, you don’t realize that you wanted something until you hear that you might get it — and then, you want it very badly. Such is the case with a project announced in Variety this morning: Bill Murray is making a Christmas special, to be directed by Sofia Coppola (they previously collaborated for “Lost in Translation”), in which he’ll be singing classic holiday songs.

Like most things involving Bill Murray, the details haven’t been ironed out yet. “It’s not going to be live,” Murray says. “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.”

He added, “It will have a patina style and wit to it. It will be nice.”

Coppola confirmed the project but said she didn’t know when it would air (which I’m assuming means whether it would be this December or next year). All I know is that I want to see this, now. Murray’s next on screen in “St. Vincent,” opening in Seattle Friday at the Meridian.
