Speaking of cranky old coots, 63-year-old eccentric BILL MURRAY’s driving everyone nuts as his new movie “St. Vincent de Van Nuys” cranks up: Mr. Mega-Star’s refusing to speak face to face with anyone – producers, writers, makeup artists, wardrobe or other staffers – unless they go through the director first!
But here’s the kranky koot kicker: Even the director’s NOT allowed to talk to – or even phone – bilious Bill!
Said My SpyWitness: “The director has to text Murray – then wait and hope that his highly paid pain will get back to him with the answers everyone desperately needs.
"Producers hope to talk Bill out of his techie communication habits – if he ever speaks to them, that is!”
