Bill Murray calls for female Ghostbusters

Bill Murray has revealed that he would like to see a girl Ghostbuster in the new movie.

The actor declared an interest in making a third instalment in the franchise last month, but told reporters that he would like to see a female pick up the famed proton pack.

He said: “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 added: “I just think there’s some funny girls I’d love to see be Ghostbusters.”

Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg are currently penning the script for the third Ghostbusters film.
