I don't think there's been a film I've made where there hasn't been some kind of physical fight

Bill Murray wants his 'Charlie's Angels' director to "die".

The 'Fantastic Mr. Fox' actor laughed off recent claims by filmmaker McG - real name Joseph McGinty Nichol - that he headbutted him during a dispute on set, but admits there is genuine tension between them.

Speaking about the allegations, Bill told Britain's The Times newspaper: "It's bulls**t. That's complete c**p. I don't know why he made that story up. He has a very active imagination.

"He deserves to die. He should be pierced with a lance, not headbutted."

Bill divorced Jennifer Butler - the mother of his four children - last year and doesn't think he will remarry.

The 59-year-old star said: "I'm not really interested. I don't know if I'll ever get married again."

Earlier this year, McG - who directed Christian Bale in 'Terminator Salvation' when he made his infamous outburst against a lighting technician - admitted his film sets are always explosive, recalling the incident with Bill.

He said: "I don't think there's been a film I've made where there hasn't been some kind of physical fight. I mean, I've been headbutted by an A-list star. Square in the head. An inch later and my nose would have been obliterated. It was Bill Murray. You know, it's a passionate industry."
