Bill Murray has been accused of "inappropriate behaviour" on the set of Being Mortal.

Following the allegations, production of the film has been suspended by its producers while the claims against Murray are investigated.

Filming was originally halted on 18 April after the complaint was made the week before with the production shutting down indefinitely from 21 April.

Charlie's Angels director McG also claimed that he was headbutted by the Ghostbusters star during filming.

Richard Dreyfuss, who worked with Murray on What About Bob? also called the SNL legend a "drunken bully" and accused him of throwing an ashtray at him.

Murray infamously got into a confrontation with former SNL co-star Chevy Chase which had to be broken up by their fellow cast members.

Longtime collaborator Harold Ramis accused Murray of throwing him against the wall during a dispute on the set of Groundhog Day. Afterwards, the two did not speak until shortly before Ramis' death in 2014.
