Production on new movie Being Mortal is paused following allegations about star Bill Murray.

Production on new film Being Mortal has been suspended following allegations of "inappropriate behaviour" by Bill Murray on set.

The comedy drama - the directorial debut from Aziz Ansari - also stars Seth Rogen and Keke Palmer and was around halfway through filming when filming was halted on Wednesday.

According to Deadline, the studio, Searchlight Pictures, took the decision after a complaint was made about veteran actor Murray, 71.

In a letter to cast and crew, the studio said: "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.

"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 and [producer Youree Henley] to figure out that timing."

A spokesperson for Searchlight said that the company would not comment on an ongoing investigation.
