Bill Murray to star in new film by Aziz Ansari

Master of None creator Aziz Ansari has already enjoyed success as an actor, writer and producer, but now Ansari is set to make his debut as a director with an adaptation of surgeon Atul Gawande’s non-fiction book Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End.

Ansari will also star in the film alongside Bill Murray, whose involvement was confirmed in a report by Deadline.

Gawande’s book became a New York Times bestseller on its release and tackles the subject of end of life choices, assisted living and the effects of medicine on the terminally ill.

There’s no information as yet on whether Ansari’s film will use the same title, or indeed any confirmation as to which characters Ansari and Murray will take on, but the film is currently projected to arrive in cinemas at some point in 2023.
