Bill Murray will show off his vocal talents by singing Christmas carols in a festive TV special to be directed by Sofia Coppola.
The pair, who worked together on the Oscar-winning Lost in Translation, confirmed the news to Variety - but kept the details under wraps.
Murray, who revealed his dulcet tones in the closing credits of the recently released St. Vincent, 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.”
He added: “It will have a patina style and wit to it. It will be nice.”
Coppola, known for directing the likes of Marie Antoinette and The Bling Ring, said: “We’re working on a Christmas special.
“[We’re] not sure when it will air, but my motivation is to hear him singing my song requests.”Reuse content
