Hollywood actor Bill Murray wants to quit making movies so he can become a writer.

THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU star insists he has always harboured deep ambitions to write and feels his "great run" in Hollywood is coming to an end.

Murray, 54, says, "I've had a great run and if I ever change careers, that would be an adventure too.

"I've been thinking about changing careers. Would it be really bold to say 'I did that, I had some success in it, but was I put here to do that only?'

"I'd like to write, really. I think I'd like to write a play. I always thought I should write."
