Production has been suspended on the set of Aziz Ansari's new movie 'Being Mortal' after a complaint was made against actor Bill Murray.
According to Deadline, who broke the story, the complaint pertains to "inappropriate behaviour" from Murray on set. It is currently unclear whether the suspension will lead to Murray being replaced in his role.
The complaint was allegedly filed last week. A decision was then made to suspend production as the investigation continues. Last night, cast and crew were made aware in a letter sent out by the studio.
'Being Mortal' is written and directed by Ansari and produced alongside his partner Youree Henley. He also stars alongside Murray, Seth Rogen and Keke Palmer.
The film is an adaptation of the 2014 New York Times bestselling book 'Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End'. The book, written by surgeon Atul Gawande, is about how medicine can not only improve life but also the process of its ending. It also examines aging, nursing homes, and hospice care.
