Sofia Coppola Forced to Cut Handwashing Scene Out of New Movie Due to Pandemic

The scene featuring Bill Murray Scolding Rashida Jones for washing hands has been deleted from Coppola’s new movie ‘On the Rocks’ amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

AceShowbizSofia Coppola had to cut a scene from her new Apple movie, “On the Rocks“, because it featured Bill Murray reprimanding Rashida Jones for washing her hands so much.

The director teamed up with her Lost in Translation leading man for the new movie, which she completed just before the coronavirus crisis forced movie studios to shut down productions, and she admits looking back at the scenes she shot just before she began self-isolation was a little odd.

“It’s weird, because we were watching it during our sound mix,” she tells Empire. “Bill Murray and Rashida Jones play father and daughter and everybody’s shaking hands in it and I was like, ‘Argh!’ It’s so weird to look at it through the filter of right now.”

”There’s a part where Bill gives her a hard time for washing her hands so much and I was like, ‘Oh my God, we need to cut this out!’ It’s weird looking at something that was made last summer and now it’s a whole different world.”

The movie is expected to debut on Apple TV+ later this year 2020.
