Bill Murray film halted after ‘inappropriate behavior’ allegations | Celebrity News | Showbiz and television
The comedy star, 71, filed suit against him last week, with production on Being Mortal now on hold. The full nature of the complaint is unclear.
It’s unclear at this time what Murray’s involvement with the project will be as the investigation continues, according to reports.
The news was shared with the cast and crew in a letter which read, “We know you are all concerned about recent production delays and want to give yourselves an update.
“At the end of last week, we were made aware of a complaint and immediately investigated it.
“After reviewing the circumstances, it has been decided that production cannot continue at this time.
“Production will be in touch with you to share packaging details, and we’ll let you know as soon as we have more information to share.”
Ghostbusters star Murray has previously been accused of being hard to work with.
He starred in Charlie’s Angels in 2000 but was accused of using “inexcusable and unacceptable language” towards his co-star Lucy Liu, 53.
Ms Liu said at the time: “I was like, ‘Wow, he seems to be looking me straight in the eye.’ I couldn’t believe this [his comments] could be towards me, because what do I have to do with anything important at this time?
“I say, ‘I’m really sorry. Are you talking to me?’ Obviously he was because then it started to become one-on-one communication.”
Being Mortal is based on the 2014 book by surgeon Atul Gawande.
