Currently in the middle of filming the movie “Being Mortal”, Bill Murray was named in a complaint last week.
New blow for Bill Murray. The 71-year-old actor has been accused of inappropriate behavior on the set of Aziz Ansari’s upcoming film, ‘Being Mortal’. After being named in a lawsuit last week, Searchlight Pictures decided to “pause” production on the film, detailing the decision to cast and crew in an email.
“We sincerely thank you for your incredible investment in this project. We hope to be able to resume production and are working with Aziz and Youree to determine when. The production will be in contact with you to share the details and we will update you as soon as we have more information”, is it written in the message, relayed by “Deadline “. The nature of the complaint, as well as the future of Bill Murray within the project, have not yet been revealed.
Previously, Bill Murray had already been accused of inappropriate behavior by Lucy Liu, his costar in “Charlie’s Angels”. The comedian had reprimanded her on the set of the film in 2000, after she and other actors reworked a scene in his absence. “Some comments were inexcusable and unacceptable. I wasn’t going to sit there without saying anything. So, yes, I defended myself and I don’t regret it. Because no matter where you came from or how important you are, there is no need to put others down or belittle others,” she said in 2021 to the “Los Angeles Times “.
