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.”
