Bryan Singer Dropped From Red Sonja Reboot

The past couple of years have been an interesting one for the industry. There have been a lot of big talents in the business being exposed for sexual misconduct, and that has led to the beginnings of some big changes up top (though there is still likely a whole lot of work to be done). One such name that’s also been dragged through the mud is X-Men helmer Bryan Singer, who has been at the center of multiple sexual assault claims.

In spite of these allegations, Millennium Films has stood by Singer, with CEO and founder Avi Lerner calling it “agenda-driven fake news” before walking back on the statement. But through it all, they’ve stood by Singer, opting to shelve the project instead of firing Singer.

Now, THR is reporting that Millennium Films was forced to drop Singer from the project because it could not secure a domestic distributor. This fact was buried in a much bigger report involving some bigger scandal within the industry, which you can read for yourself in the source link at the bottom of this piece.

The film was originally set to hit production this year, but that’s clearly not happening, but with Singer gone, we’ll see if they can hire a director less steeped in controversy. Perhaps that can help gain some overall momentum for the project.
