Murray to get passionate with Fox

Fox is currently shooting the film in New Mexico, playing an angel in 1950s Los Angeles who helps save a troubled trumpet player, portrayed by Mickey Rourke.

And now Murray has been drafted in to replace RocknRolla star Kebbell as a gangster in the drama, according to Production Weekly.

The project will see the actor reteam with director Mitch Glazer, who wrote the screenplay for Murray’s 1988 cult Christmas movie Scrooged.
