Keke Palmer Talks ‘Being Mortal,’ The Film Shut Down After Complaint Against Bill Murray

Tonight, Keke Palmer gave a speech about her time working on Aziz Ansari’s Being Mortal, his feature film directorial debut. Three months after the movie’s production was halted owing to a complaint against star Bill Murray, she made these remarks to Deadline.

Palmer said, “I had a great time filming. “One of the coolest guys I’ve ever met is Aziz Ansari. I don’t have any other knowledge beyond that, but that was the coolest experience.

Being Mortal was initially announced by Searchlight Pictures in the spring. In the film adaptation of Atul Gawande’s nonfiction book Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End, Seth Rogen was also cast.

With a release date of 2023 in mind, the company had half of the shoot wrapped up by April. However, when an allegation of inappropriate behavior against Murray surfaced, the studio immediately halted filming.

Information regarding whether and when production might resume has not yet been made public.

Also unreleased are the specifics of the allegation against Murray, despite the fact that Murray spoke with CNBC in April and discussed the production halt.

The actor said at the time, “I did something I thought was funny, and it wasn’t perceived that way. “The business, the film studio, wanted to act morally, so they halted the filming in order to investigate and check everything out. However, as of right now, we’re conversing and attempting to mend our differences. The true problem, in my opinion, is with our peace. We both work in our fields. Each other’s work appeals to us. We get along well and trust each other, so there’s no use in continuing to work together or making a movie if that’s not the case.
