Bill Murray and Lucas Black have joined the cast of Get Low, a dramatic period piece which also features Robert Duvall and Sissy Spacek in the cast.
The film is based on the true story of Felix "Bush" Breazeale, a recluse in Tennessee who planned his own funeral while still alive in 1938 so he could enjoy and experience the festivities, so to speak. Breazeale's plan generated a significant amount of publicity, and his "funeral" was reported by national outlets, including the Associated Press and Life Magazine. The event also reportedly drew 8,000-12,000 people. Breazeale eventually died in 1943.
Murray and Black will play funeral home partners, while Aaron Schneider will direct. The film began shooting in Georgia last week.
