‘Red Sonja’ Put on Hold; Bryan Singer May Be Out as Director

Bryan Singer Red Sonja

Singer was sacked from Bohemian Rhapsody just weeks before its completion though he is still credited as a director, a fact that producers hope does not impact its chances at the Oscars later this month. After the movie was on the slate previous year at the American Film Market, the prolific USA mini-studio has told us, "the project is not on the slate at the moment and is not for sale at the EFM in Berlin". Despite the fact, his latest film, Bohemian Rhapsody - primarily directed by him - has been nominated for several awards and did very well at the box office, Singer's luck appears to have run out.

Millennium Films CEO Avi Lerner had released a controversial statement post the article and called it "agenda driven fake news".

Previously, the spokesperson said that people are innocent before proven guilty.

Red Sonja, a female empowerment story, would have earned Singer a $10 million pay package.

According to a new report, Millenium Films has delayed filming of Singer's latest movie, titled Red Sonja, following the recent cascade of allegations against him among them including rape, harassment, and sexual assault. Singer has recently been faced with four new claims of sexual assault and misconduct, with The Atlantic citing more than 50 sources alleging the director had sex with boys aged 15 and 17, while another, Victor Valdovinos alleged he was sexually assaulted by Singer on the set of Apt Pupil when Valdovinos was a 13-year-old extra.

Lerner later walked back his comments a bit, noting last week that his previous comments "came out the wrong way". Singer, who has constantly denied the allegations, said the piece "rehashes claims from bogus lawsuits". Last week, BAFTA took the unusual step of removing the filmmaker from contention in its Outstanding British Film Category due to the allegations. His award nomination for the film was also withdrawn by GLAAD while Time's Up released a statement saying those who hire abusers, "perpetuate a broken system that rewards powerful people and allows them to act without effect". "I think victims should be heard and this allegation should be taken very, very seriously". I just don't agree to judge by the Twitter.
