Bill Murray: ‘Inappropriate Behavior’ Causes Temporary Suspension of Film
People reports that actor Bill Murray has reportedly been accused of inappropriate behavior on the set of Aziz Ansari’s upcoming film Being Mortal, which has led to production on the film being suspended.
Murray, 71, was named last week in a complaint, which Searchlight Pictures is investigating after suspending production on the film, according to Deadline. Deadline reprinted an email from Fox Searchlight to the cast and crew of the film; it doesn’t mention anyone by name, but it said “Late last week, we were made aware of a complaint, and we immediately looked into it. After reviewing the circumstances, it has been decided that production cannot continue at this time.”
Deadline and People report that the complaint was against Murray and not against Ansari. According to Deadline, Being Mortal is based on Atul Gawande’s 2014 book Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End, which explores hospice and end-of-life care. The movie began filming on March 28.
