Bill Murray Film ‘Being Mortal’ Halts Production Over Inappropriate Behaviour Allegations
Searchlight Pictures has suspended production of upcoming movie Being Mortal amid allegations against actor Bill Murray.
Murray is subject to allegations of inappropriate behaviour on set.
As reported by The New York Times, the company issued a letter to the cast and crew on Wednesday regarding the suspension.
“Late last week, we were made aware of a complaint, and we immediately looked into it,” the letter reportedly said. “We are truly grateful to all of you for everything you’ve put into this project.”
It isn’t the first time Murray has been subject to allegations of inappropriate behaviour.
Lucy Liu, who worked with Murray on Charlie’s Angels, said: “Some of the language was inexcusable and unacceptable, and I was not going to just sit there and take it.
“So, yes, I stood up for myself and I don’t regret it. Because no matter how low on the totem pole you may be or wherever you came from, there’s no need to condescend or to put other people down.”
It is uncertain when, or if, production will continue on the movie – and whether or not Murray will be involved.
