Hollywood movie producer David Guillod was booked Monday into the Santa Barbara County Jail on multiple charges of rape.

Guillod, 53, is best known for his 2017 movie "Atomic Blonde," and "Extraction," which was released on Netflix this year.

Guillod faces eleven counts that include kidnap for rape, rape of an unconscious person, and multiple other charges.

According to the Santa Barbara County District Attorney's Office, the crimes occurred in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles counties between 2012 and 2015 and involve four victims on three different occasions.

In each of the cases, Guillod is accused of sexually assaulting a woman who was unable to resist because she was under the influence of an "intoxicating, anesthetic or controlled substance," according to the complaint against him.

Guillod's bail is set at $3 million and includes a condition ordering GPS monitoring if he's released. He is also ordered to have no contact with the alleged victims.

If convicted of all the charges against him, he could face 21 years to life in prison.

Anyone with information about other potential victims is urged to contact Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Detective Joaquin Oliver at (805) 681-4100.
