Get Low

(Sam Emerson)

STARRING Robert Duvall, Bill Murray
DIRECTED BY Aaron Schneider
WRITTEN BY Chris Provenzano and C. Gaby Mitchell

Oscar winner Robert Duvall (1983’s Tender Mercies) plays Felix Bush, a 1930s small-town recluse who hosts his own funeral while he’s still alive. ”Robert’s probably the greatest living actor who can embody this sort of Southern character,” says producer Dean Zanuck. To play the wry mortician who sees the stunt as a financial opportunity, the creators of the PG-13 drama found Bill Murray — though even Zanuck admits the mercurial actor remained ”an elusive pipe dream until he showed up on the set.”
