- Someone working with Bill Murray complained about his behaviour
- Production was put on pause
- No word on who complained has been released
Uh-oh! Funny guy Bill Murray has found himself in hot water over some allegations of "inappropriate behaviour". Although the report didn't say what the behaviour was, nor who filed the complaint, it's caused enough of a stir on set that it halted production.
Bill Murray causes pause on movie production
Bill Murray, along with Aziz Ansari, Seth Rogan and Keke Palmer, is set to star in the upcoming film, Being Mortal. However, it has been reported by Deadline that due to some complaints in regards to Bill Murray's behaviour, they can't continue at this time.
Murray, who hasn't spoken on the issue as of yet, is under investigation after it was reported he was involved in something undisclosed that caused concern for the production team.
Although it wasn't said the nature of the complaint or even if Murray is allowed back, Deadline shared a snippet of a letter with limited details while the investigation is still ongoing.
"We know you are all concerned about the recent delays in production and want to give you an update. Late last week, we were made aware of a complaint, and we immediately looked into it," it read. "After reviewing the circumstances, it has been decided that production cannot continue at this time."
Ansari was set to make his directorial debut on this film, although it has been made clear he is not part of the complaint.
"Production will be in touch with you to share details on the wrap, and we will let you know as soon as we have more information to share," the email read.
Murray has been complained about before, most notably in 2000 when Lucy Lui said last year to the Los Angeles Times on the set of Charlie's Angels, Murray was using "inexcusable" and "unacceptable" language on set, and "berated" his costars. Yikes!
