"We know you are all concerned about the recent delays in production and want to give you an update," the letter read.

"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," it continued. "We are truly grateful to all of you for everything you’ve put into this project. Our hope is to resume production and are working with Aziz and Youree to figure out that timing."

The film, which is based on Atul Gawande's Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End, was set to star Ansari and Murray as well as Pineapple Express star Seth Rogan.

This was a passion project for the Parks and Rec actor with him set to write, act and direct the film as a potential awards contender.

Principal photography started less than a month ago with sources saying the film was only halfway through production by the time Searchlight stepped in to press pause.
