Andrew Jarecki and Marc Smerling are going silent.

The Jinx director Andrew Jarecki made the media rounds on Monday morning, appearing on Good Morning America and CBS This Morning and giving an interview to The New York Times. But now he's going silent.

Jarecki and The Jinx producer Marc Smerling released a statement to various media outlets who requested interviews with the filmmakers, saying they wouldn't be commenting further due to Robert Durst's legal situation.

"Given that we are likely to be called as witnesses in any case law enforcement may decide to bring against Robert Durst, it is not appropriate for us to comment further on these pending matters," the statement reads.

Jimmy Fallon tweeted that Jarecki would no longer appear on Monday night's Tonight Show.

MSNBC's Chris Hayes also tweeted that Jarecki and Smerling canceled their interview scheduled for Monday night, along with all further media appearances.
