After their critically acclaimed work together on indie anti-romcom “Lost in Translation,”  Sofia Coppola and Bill Murray are joining forces again to create a…Christmas special?

While details remain pretty vague- it’s not known whether it will be out this Christmas or the next – Coppola and Murray seem pretty enthused about the project.

Variety broke the story, quoting Bill Murray’s description of the project, “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.”

Bill Murray singing Christmas carols with an award-winning director behind the camera? Whether it’ll be more Muppets Christmas Carol or the typical cheesy Christmas special — cue Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey circa 2004 — remains to be seen, but this can only be good.
