Bill Murray is the President in Hyde Park on the Hudson

Bill Murray is set to star as Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the 32nd President of the United States, in Hyde Park on the Hudson.

According to Vulture,

“[The film] recounts the quasi-incestuous love affair between the president and his distant cousin, Margaret Stuckley, and takes place on the June 1939 weekend that the British King and Queen visited Roosevelt at his upstate New York cottage, in the first-ever visit to America by a member of the United Kingdom monarchy.”

Icky!

Roger Michell (Morning Glory) will direct, while In The Loop’s Kevin Loader will produce (indicating that the project will hopefully have a half-comic, satirical bite).

Discuss: We genuinely don’t know which Murray to expect in this: Serious or Smirking? Which take would you like to see him … umm, take?
