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.
