Bill Murray is being investigated for “inappropriate behavior” after the film set was shut down.
Bill Murray is in professional hell.
The filming of the 71-year-old “SNL” legend’s new movie, “Being Mortal,” has been put on hold after a complaint was reportedly made against the actor, accusing him of “inappropriate behavior.”
It was revealed last week, and production was put on hold for a short time on Monday, according to Deadline. After an investigation into the “Ghostbusters” star’s on-set behavior, the movie was put on hold for good on Thursday.
It has been decided that production can’t go on at this time, a letter from Searchlight Pictures to the cast and crew said. “We are so grateful for everything you’ve done for this project.”
Being Mortal, a film written by Aziz Ansari, which also stars Seth Rogen, started shooting last month. Ansari is also directing and co-starring in the film with Rogen. They aren’t said to be part of the investigation.
People for Murray, Ansari, and Rogen have been contacted by the Post to give their side of the story.
In the US, Murray is one of the country’s best-known actors. The “Groundhog Day” star has a long history of making enemies on the set of his TV and film projects.
On “Charlie’s Angels” in 2000, Murray and co-star Lucy Liu got into a fight. Liu said Murray made “inexcusable and unacceptable” comments to her on set.
When Drew Barrymore talked about the incident last year, she said that Bill was just in a bad mood because “comedians can be a little dark sometimes, and he just came in.”
McG, the director of “Charlie’s Angels,” also said that Murray hit him on the set of the action movie.
Asked McG in May 2009: “Square up.” It would have been a lot worse for me if I had waited an inch longer.
Murray was very angry about the claim.
I think that’s bulls–t! In October 2009, he told the Times of London, “That’s a load of shit.” I don’t know why he made up that story.” He has a lot of imagination.
There, Richard Dreyfuss, a two-time Oscar winner, called Murray a “drunk bully.” Murray is said to have hit Dreyfuss with an ashtray on the 1991 movie “What About Bob.”
Everybody hates you!’ he screamed. You’re fine, thanks! Dreyfuss talked about it in a Yahoo! interview in June 2019.
It didn’t take long for him to back away and take the modern glass-blown ashtray. A few feet away, he threw it at my face. And it was about three-quarters of a pound in weight as well. He also missed me. He tried to punch me. I climbed up and left.
While that was going on, the film’s writer and producer, Laura Ziskin, told the Los Angeles Times in 2003 that Murray made threats to her.
Ziskin once said that Murray threw her into a lake after they had a fight, but she called it “playful.”
When she was in the parking lot, “Bill… said he would throw me across the lot, and then he broke my sunglasses and threw them across the lot.”
Murray is famous for getting into a fight with Chevy Chase on the set of “Saturday Night Live” in 1978.
There was an insult exchange between the two, according to the book “Live From New York: An Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live.” Murray told Chase to go have sex with Jacqueline Carlin, Chase’s then-wife. Chase said that Murray’s face looked “like something Neil Armstrong landed on,” which was a silly thing to say.
It quickly turned into a fight, which Jane Curtin, Laraine Newman, and Gilda Radner saw.
Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen: Newman said the fight was “sad and painful and awful” in June of that year.
It’s also said that Murray and Harold Ramis got into a fight on the set of “Groundhog Day” in 1993. Ramis is said to have grabbed Murray by the shirt collar and threw him against a wall during a heated debate about how to make a movie.
It was revealed by Violet Ramis Stiel, Harold Ramis’ daughter, who wrote a book in 2018 called “Ghostbuster’s Daughter: Life With My Dad, Harold Ramis.” Murray didn’t speak to Ramis for more than 20 years, she said. He tried not to take it personally, but he was heartbroken, confused, and at the same time not surprised by the rejection.
Before Ramis died in February 2014, Murray was able to get back together with the actor.
Anjelica Huston is said to have been “hurt” when Murray did not invite her to a dinner party while making “The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou.”
“The first week I was in Italy, we were all in this little hotel, and he invited the whole cast, except me, to go out to dinner.”
“I was really hurt,” she said. When we were filming a scene at Gore Vidal’s house in Ravello, Murray asked, “Hey, how’ve you been? I thought we had seen each other before.” I haven’t seen you in a while. said, “You’re full of shit.” You didn’t miss me at all. He looked a little lost for a while.
There was a time when Murray and Huston didn’t get along. The actor from “Lost in Translation” showed up at the death of Huston’s husband, Robert Graham.
That day, “He couldn’t have been nicer.” “He came. Many people didn’t.
