It’s been 16 years since Lost In Translation, and now director Sofia Coppola and star Bill Murray are reuniting for a new film called On The Rocks—they also reunited a couple years ago for Bill Murray’s Netflix Christmas special, but it was a little disappointing so we won’t bring it up again. According to IndieWire, On The Rocks is about “a young mother who reconnects with her larger-than-life playboy father on an adventure through new York,” with Rashida Jones playing the young mother and Murray presumably playing the playboy father—a role that seems well-suited to his knack for playing swaggering old dudes who are past their prime.

The other big hook for On The Rocks, at least from a production standpoint, is that it’ll be a joint production between indie studio A24 and Apple—which is stepping into the world of film producing alongside its still-mysterious journey into video streaming. Unfortunately, with how mysterious this all is, we don’t know what Apple’s involvement actually means for On The Rocks, including whether or not it will get a theatrical release or if it’ll appear on Apple’s streaming service.
