Warner Bros. studio and filmmaker Brett Ratner have parted ways on all forthcoming movie projects, after the producer was accused of sexual harassment by numerous women earlier this week.

The news of the decision came in the aftermath of a report in the Los Angeles Times on Wednesday (November 1st) cited six women who allege that Ratner sexually harassed them, or behaved inappropriately toward them, including actresses Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge.

“In light of the allegations being made, I am choosing to personally step away from all Warner Bros.-related activities,” 48 year old Ratner said in a statement, reported by the Hollywood Reporter. “I don’t want to have any possible negative impact to the studio until these personal issues are resolved.”

Earlier that morning, Ratner’s attorney Martin Singer denied all of the accusations in a ten-page letter responding to the L.A. Times article. “I have represented Mr. Ratner for two decades, and no woman has ever made a claim against him for sexual misconduct or sexual harassment,” it said.

However, Warner Bros. said in their own statement at around the same time: “We are aware of the allegations in the L.A. Times and are reviewing the situation.”

As a result of the separation from Warner Bros., Ratner will no longer be a producer on the upcoming adaptation of best-selling novel ‘The Goldfinch’, and his first-look deal with the studio will also not be renewed. He’ll also lose his offices on the studio’s lot.

However, he remains a partner in the RatPac-Dune Entertainment slate financing facility, which was established four years ago with a $450 million financing agreement signed by Warner Bros.

The accusations against Rush Hour director Ratner come as similar allegations have been levelled against Dustin Hoffman and Kevin Spacey, following the slew of sexual harassment claims made against disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein last month.
