Bill Murray’s Comments Cause ‘Being Mortal’ Complaint and Production Delay

News broke last week that production was halted on the set of Searchlight Films’ ‘Being Mortal’. The film, which is written, directed by, and starring Aziz Ansari, suspended production after a complaint was lodged against co-star Bill Murray. Murray made some inappropriate comments to a woman co-worker on the set, which he addressed during an interview with CNBC at the 2022 Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholders Meeting.

Talking to host Becky Quick, Murray didn’t get into specifics, calling the incident a “difference of opinion” with a woman on the set. “I did something I thought was funny, and it wasn’t taken that way,” … The company, the movie studio, wanted to do the right thing, so they wanted to check it all out, investigate it. and so they stopped the production. But as of now, we’re talking and we’re trying to make peace with each other. I think that’s where the real issue is, between our peace. We’re both professionals. We like each other’s work. We like each other, I think, and if you can’t really get along and trust each other, there’s no point in going further working together or making a movie as well.”
