Murray embarks on film research

Bill Murray has been carrying out research for his next film role

Bill Murray has checked out Franklin D Roosevelt's old upstate New York digs as he prepares for a turn as the former president in a film set on the eve of the Second World War.

The Caddyshack and Ghostbusters star spent several hours in Hyde Park in New York, which is the setting for Richard Nelson's screenplay, Hyde Park On Hudson.

The film centres on the June 1939 visit of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth to FDR's Hudson Valley home. The movie is being directed by Roger Michell, who made Notting Hill.

Laura Linney is cast as FDR's distant cousin Margaret Daisy Suckley, with whom the 32nd president had a close relationship. Filming starts next month and release is scheduled for 2012.
