Production was temporarily halted on Monday pending an investigation.

A source told Page Six: “He was very touchy, not in personal areas, but would put an arm around a woman, touch her hair, tug on her ponytail – but always in a comedic way.

“It’s a fine line and everyone loves Bill, but while his behavior isn’t illegal, it made some women uncomfortable and he crossed a line.”

Another source told the publication: “Loves women and loves to flirt, he likes poetry and romance, he’s always flirting but it’s always dressed in comedy. It’s not clear if he crossed a line.”

It is believed that Murray is currently single.

The cast and crew were informed of the halt to production in a letter from studio Searchlight Pictures on Wednesday night by the deadline.

“After reviewing the circumstances, it has been decided that production cannot proceed at this time,” Searchlight Pictures wrote in the letter.

“We are really grateful to you all for everything you put into this project.”

Seth Rogen and Aziz Ansari – who stars, writes and makes his directorial debut – were not part of the complaint, Deadline reported, citing sources.

Ansari faced his own professional problems when a woman accused him of sexual misconduct after a date.

She claimed he pushed her into penetrative sex in ways that ranged from annoying to disrespectful.

Aziz made this public statement about the allegations, saying he was “surprised and concerned” when she texted him the next day and was told they took a different view of the interaction.

He said: “I took her words to heart and responded privately after taking the time to process what she had said. I continue to support the movement that is taking place in our culture. It is necessary and long overdue.”

His film is based on non-fiction and was due for release in 2023 – it’s unknown if the suspension will affect the schedule.

MURRAY ‘MELTDOWN’

It comes as Richard Dreyfuss’ son Ben claimed on Twitter that the Walt Disney Co. hired bodyguards to ensure the safety of the cast and crew of his father’s 1991 megahit comedy ‘What About Bob?’

On Thursday, he claimed Murray “had a meltdown” after producer Laura Ziskin refused him an extra day off.

Ben Dreyfuss, 35, claimed Murray “ripped her glasses off her face and my father complained about his behavior and Bill Murray threw an ashtray at him”.

He said, “Everyone left the production and flew back to LA and it only picked up again after Disney hired some bodyguards to physically separate my dad and Bill Murray between takes.”

The ashtray allegation had previously been raised when the elder Dreyfuss called Murray a “drunken thug” in 2009.

He said: “He put his face next to me, nose to nose, and he screamed at the top of his lungs, ‘Everybody hates you! You will be tolerated!’

“There was no time to react because he sat back and grabbed a modern glass blown ashtray, he threw it in my face [only a couple feet away]. And it weighed about three quarters of a pound. And he missed me. He tried to hit me. I got up and left.”

HOLLYWOOD SUCCESS

Murray is best known as an American actor, comedian and writer who has appeared in critically acclaimed works such as Groundhog Day, Ghostbusters, The Jungle Book and Lost In Translation.

Bill Murray burst into the spotlight as a comedian on Saturday Night Live when he joined the cast in its second season.

In 1977 he received a Primetime Emmy Award for his writing on the show.

He landed roles in comedies like Meatballs, Caddyshack, and Stripes before landing a role in Ghostbusters, which went on to become one of the top-grossing movies of the ’80s.

After a flop with the release of The Razor’s Edge in 1984, Murray took a break from acting to study philosophy and history at the Sorbonne University in Paris, then returned in 1988 to star in Scrooged and 1989 in Ghostbusters II.

The ’90s brought a more serious and thoughtful side to Murray, including roles in Ed Wood and Rushmore.

In 2003, Murray played a beat-up American actor visiting Japan in Lost in Translation.

This is the play that really made him an accomplished actor, capable of more than comedy.

The role earned him an Oscar nomination, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA.

The accomplished actor also won the Kennedy Center’s Mark Twain Prize for Humor in 2016.
