Untitled special reunites Murray with 'Lost In Translation' director Sofia Coppola
George Clooney and Miley Cyrus are to play themselves in Bill Murray’s upcoming “Christmas special”.
Parks And Recreation‘s Amy Poehler and Bridesmaids actress Maya Rudolph will also appear as themselves in the special, currently untitled, which reunites Murray with Lost In Translation director Sofia Coppola.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the special will follow Murray, who famously chooses not to have an agent or manager, as a dodgy Hollywood operator tries desperately to sign him. Further details about the special are currently unknown, but some of the famous guest stars will apparently be seen singing carols.
It’s been rumoured that the special will premiere on Netflix, though this has yet to be confirmed.
Released in 2002, Coppola’s Lost In Translation starred Murray as a jaded actor who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a college graduate (Scarlett Johansson) after a chance meeting in a Tokyo hotel. It was nominated for four Oscars: Best Picture, Best Actor for Murray, Best Director for Coppola and Best Original Screenplay for Coppola, which she won.
