The LAPD is re-opening the investigation into Hollywood mogul David Guillod.

According to TMZ, a warrant has been issued to collect the DNA of the Atomic Blonde producer in connection to claims made by actress Jessica Barth that he drugged and raped her in 2012.

As we reported, the Ted star claimed she went to dinner with Guillod — who has since been accused of sexual assault by three other women — and a friend, drank a lot of wine, and woke up at her home with “six hickeys” on her neck.

In the investigation docs, officials add that Barth went to the hospital for a rape kit and the exam revealed bruises on her thigh and forehead, along with potential saliva on her breast and neck.

Barth said she asked Guillod if they had sex and he said no, but admitted they did have a makeout session.

The initial allegations were investigated and the case was closed in 2014 — but after “new allegations” surfaced, the LAPD decided to re-open the investigation.

After Barth’s accusations went public in November, Guillod stepped down as co-CEO of Primary Wave Entertainment. Shortly following his resignation, three more women came forward with similar allegations of being drugged and raped.

A big misfire in the original investigation, officials noted, was that they never collected a DNA sample from Guillod, so they are looking to do that now.

Time certainly seems to be up for Guillod, who is also reportedly under investigation by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office for allegedly raping a former employee in 2014.
