The actor vows he will never work on a movie with Howard again because he is still upset Howard rejected his offer to direct bank heist film 'Quick Change'.

has vowed never to work on a movie with Ron Howard again after the director rejected the actor's offer to direct bank heist film "Quick Change" because he didn't think it was funny. Murray made his directorial debut with the 1990 film only because no one else wanted to make it and he's still sore about having to step behind the camera.

And he still holds a grudge against movie maker Howard for criticizing the comedy he co-wrote before saying no. Murray explains, "You know we couldn't get anyone we liked to direct 'Quick Change'. We asked (Jonathan) Demme, and Demme said no. And we asked Ron Howard, because Ron Howard had made something that I thought was funny."

"He made a funny movie back then - I can't remember what it was. He said he didn't know who to root for in the script... He lost me at that moment. I've never gone back to him since."
