Keke Palmer is remaining silent over the Bill Murray lawsuit that halted “Being Mortal” production, but she is very clear that she wants to see the Aziz Ansari-starring movie finished in some way.
At the Academy Museum Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday, she added in an interview with Variety, “If anybody could figure it out, it would be Aziz.” Obviously, we had to end the conversation at some point, but I will admit that I am really disappointed. It’s a fantastic movie. If there is a way to finish it or save it, I would like to do that.
With only about a month remaining to shoot, Palmer added, Ansari might need to “perform a huge rewrite” in order to finish the picture.
She said, “But I know what we got is gold,” calling Ansari “amazing” and expressing her want to see him make his directorial debut.
What Did Bill Murray Say To Keke Palmer?
Although Bill’s specific remarks or actions on set are unknown because they were never disclosed, the actor did consider them after learning that the entire incident had gone viral. Bill had an honest conversation with CNBC in April 2022 while he was in Omaha, Nebraska for the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholder meeting.
Bill explained to the publication that he and a female co-worker had a “conflict of opinion,” adding, “I did something I thought was hilarious, and it wasn’t perceived that way.” Bill omitted to say who the woman was by name. The Ghostbusters actor took sure to emphasize that he is hopeful for a swift settlement.
“As of right now, we are talking and trying to work things out,” he told the outlet, adding, “We are both professionals, we like each other’s work, I guess, and there’s no point in continuing further working together or creating the movie as well, if we can’t really get along and trust each other. It’s given me a lot to learn.”
Bill then described the circumstance as being similar to “a really sad puppy that is unable to learn. I don’t intend to be that depressed dog, nor do I want to.”
Bill says, “What would make me the happiest would be to put my boots on and for both of us to go back into work and be able to trust each other and work at the work that we’ve both spent a lot of time developing the skill of.” However, production on the movie is currently halted while investigations are ongoing.
