The upcoming female-led Ghostbusters sequel may lack Bill Murray, but it doesn't lack his stamp of approval.

While promoting his latest film, St. Vincent, at the Toronto International Film Festival, Murray said:

"It sounds great to me. It sounds as good an idea as any other! There are a lot of women that could scare off any kind of vapor! … I would watch it! I mean, I love Robert Palmer’s videos, so why wouldn’t I love the female Ghostbusters?"

He’s so gun-ho about the project he even threw out some funny ladies he’d like to see star in the sequel:

“Melissa would be a spectacular Ghostbuster. And Kristen Wiig is so funny — God, she’s funny! I like this girl Linda Cardellini a lot. And Emma Stone is funny. There are some funny girls out there.”

McCarthy, who stars in St. Vincent with Murray, said:

“Oh, my God, that’s daunting. That’s taking on a legend, a legendary movie. But I would do anything with those ladies, anything at all.”

We have to agree with Murray: We'd watch a female driven Ghostbusters. Add any combination of these ladies and it'll be a must-see.
