A complaint about the 'Ghostbusters: Afterlife' actor's alleged bad behavior has led Searchlight Pictures to suspend production of the movie that is written and directed by Aziz Ansari.

AceShowbiz - Bill Murray is under investigation for his alleged bad behavior. The "Ghostbusters: Afterlife" actor has been accused of "inappropriate behavior" which later caused the production of his upcoming film "Being Mortal" to be suspended.

A letter to the cast and crew, seen by Deadline, revealed that an investigation has been launched. "We know you are all concerned about the recent delays in production and want to give you an update," read the message.

"Late last week, we were made aware of a complaint, and we immediately looked into it. After reviewing the circumstances, it has been decided that production cannot continue at this time," the letter continued. The statement went on to state, "We are truly grateful to all of you for everything you've put into this project. Our hope is to resume production and are working with [Aziz Ansari] and [Youree Henley] to figure out that timing."

The letter did not provide any information on the nature of the complaint or who's involved. However, a source working on the production, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the details of the matter are being kept confidential, said that the movie was shut down because of what was described only as "inappropriate behavior" by Bill.

Prior to this, it has been widely reported that while filming the 2000 movie "Charlie's Angels", Bill clashed with his co-star Lucy Liu. He's said to have berated the actress after she confronted him over tweaking the script of the blockbuster.

Lucy herself claimed when she and Bill filmed a scene, he started to "sort of hurl insults" though she did not specify what he said. The 53-year-old actress added that she realized the insulting remarks were solely directed at her.

"I couldn't believe that [the comments] could be towards me, because what do I have to do with anything majorly important at that time?" Lucy told the Los Angeles Times during an interview last July. "I literally do the look around my shoulder thing, like, who is he talking to behind me?"

Lucy continued, "I say, 'I'm so sorry. Are you talking to me?' And clearly he was because then it started to become a one-on-one communication." She went on to say that Bill let out "inexcusable and unacceptable" language before pointing out, "I was not going to just sit there and take it. So, yes, I stood up for myself, and I don't regret it."
