News of the union comes a year after it was reported that Bill was accused of ‘inappropriate behavior’ leading to his latest movie shut down.
The actor had the complaint filed against him in April last year before Aziz Ansari and Seth Rogan’s Being Mortal was temporarily shelved, it was claimed.
The details of the allegations were not immediately clear but Searchlight Pictures said an investigation has been launched.
He has previously been accused of misbehaving on set, having allegedly been part of a ferocious bust up with his Charlie’s Angels co-star Lucy Liu.
He is said to have berated the actress after she confronted him over tweaking the script to the 2001 blockbuster.
Searchlight temporarily stopped production after the allegations emerged – but said it would halt indefinitely pending investigation.
A letter to the cast and crew, seen by Deadline, said: ‘We know you are all concerned about the recent delays in production and want to give you an update. 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.’
