David Guillod, a film producer behind popular action flicks like “Atomic Blonde” and Netflix’s “Extraction,” was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault just months after he was accused of drugging and raping at least four women in Santa Barbara.

The 53-year-old filmmaker was taken into custody at his home in the Sherman Oaks area of Los Angeles Wednesday night after a woman reported him to the LAPD earlier this month. She told authorities Guillod had sexually assaulted her during an “evening meeting” on Oct. 21, according to a police statement.

The Hollywood executive was out on bail when the alleged incident occurred. He surrendered to authorities in June and was hit with 11 felony counts, including rape, kidnap and rape of a drugged victim.

The charges stem from encounters with four women — one of who was Guillod’s assistant — in 2012, 2014 and 2015.

Guillod was the head of Primary Wave Entertainment, a talent agency, until actress Jessica Barth accused him in 2017 of sexually assaulting and drugging her five years prior. Her case is among the four currently being investigated by the Santa Barbara authorities.

Guillod, who has also previously been accused of sexually assaulting and drugging an employee during a 2014 retreat, remained behind bars on Thursday. His bail was set at $5 million.

He was most recently an executive producer for the 2020 Netflix film “Extraction,” featuring Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Russo, Mike Larocca and Joe Russo. Guillod is also well-known for executive producing 2017 1/4 u2032s “Atomic Blonde” which starred Charlize Theron.
