Murray: 'Ghostbusters Needs Girls'

Actor BILL MURRAY is keen to see a new generation of GHOSTBUSTERS pick up their proton packs - especially if they are female.
The funnyman starred in the 1984 hit movie and its 1989 sequel, and has been bombarded with requests to bring the four hapless ghoul fighters back to the big screen.
And Murray is reportedly interested in reprising his original role in a new film, branding a possible third installment "a great idea".
Speculation suggests studio bosses are working on a script to team original stars Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson with a new batch of Ghostbusters, to be played by Seth Rogen, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and Chris Rock.
But the Scrooged actor would like to add a more feminine aspect to the spook catching squad.
He tells MTV.com, "I think it'd be funny to have a girl Ghostbuster. We don't have a girl Ghostbuster. I mean, they say like, 'What if you passed it to Chris Rock?' And I go, 'Well, I dunno. Is Chris Rock gonna save us?' You know, I guess. He's funny."
He adds, "I just think there's some funny girls I'd love to see be Ghostbusters."
