Director and producer Brett Ratner is stepping away from all Warner Bros. related activities following the claims of sexual harassment made against him by six women in a Los Angeles Times article published Wednesday.

Ratner said Wednesday he doesn’t want to have any possible negative impact to the studio until what he called “personal issues” are resolved. He did not reference the allegations specifically. Among the actors who have accused Ratner of harassment is Olivia Munn.

Ratner’s production company RatPac-Dune Entertainment has a co-financing deal with the studio that has encompassed much of Warner Bros.’s output, including Wonder Woman, It and the upcoming Justice League.

Ratner’s attorney has said the director vehemently denies the allegations.
