Bill Murray filed a complaint for “inappropriate behavior” which led Searchlight Pictures to suspend its production of “Being Mortal”.
The studio made the decision to halt production on the film on Monday after the lawsuit was filed against Murray, who is 71.
The actor responded to the complaint during an interview with CNBC at Berkshire Hathaway’s annual reunion and said he had a “difference of opinion” with an unnamed woman working on the film and “did something thing that I thought was funny and it wasn’t taken that way.”
“We talk and try to make peace with each other,” Murray said.

“Right now we’re talking and trying to make peace with each other,” Murray said. “We’re both professionals, we love each other’s work, we love each other I think and if we can’t really get along and trust each other, there’s no point in going further working together. or making the movie as well. It was quite an education for me.”
Murray said he thought the two would “make peace” with the incident, but said if the two “can’t get along and trust each other” there would be no point in making the film.

He said the past week has been “quite an education” and said “I haven’t done much but think about it for a week or two”.
Speaking about the incident, Murray said the world was “different” than it was when he was a child.
“What I always thought was funny when I was little isn’t necessarily the same as what’s funny now. Things change and times change,” Murray said. “I think he’s a sad dog who can’t learn anymore. I think he’s a really sad puppy who can’t learn anymore. I don’t want to be that sad dog and I have no intention of being that.”
