EW just dropped the first look at On the Rocks, the eighth feature film from Sofia Coppola that doubles as a reunion with Lost in Translation star Bill Murray. An “odd couple, buddy movie” comedy set in New York City, On the Rocks Rashida Jones (Parks and Recreation) as Laura, a writer who teams up with her rich, art-dealing father Felix (Murray) to investigate the husband (Marlon Wayans) she suspects of having an affair. The film, produced alongside the endlessly hot A24, will debut on Apple TV+.
“I wanted to do something that was a little bit lighter and more playful with a lot of heart and sincerity,” Coppola told EW. It’s been 16 years since Lost in Translation, Coppola’s first collaboration with Murray, notched the filmmaker a Best Original Screenplay Oscar. Here’s what she had to say about the reunion:
“I never thought I could do something with Bill again, because people have such a fondness of him and Lost in Translation. I could never recreate something like that, so I never wanted to touch it. But, all this time has passed, and I loved working with him and I love seeing him in film. We haven’t really seen him as this debonair, playboy father at this stage [of life], so I just had to get over it because now we’re in a different phase [of life].”
