The sexual misconduct allegations that began late last year are continuing into this year, and so are the ramifications from allegations that occurred last year. According to Deadline, X-Men director Bryan Singer will no longer get an executive producer credit on the FX drama series, Legion.
Interestingly enough, this wasn’t a move from FX, or from creator and executive producer Noah Hawley, but rather a request from Singer himself.
“Bryan asked to take his name off the show, so we have done that,” Hawley stated at the Legion TCA panel.
However, despite Singer’s name that was already attached to the series, it doesn’t sound like he was involved in any real way.
“Very early on in the conception of the show, I met him a couple of times. He was interested in directing the pilot, but once I stepped in to direct, I haven’t spoken to him since that moment. Really, he was a name on the screen.”
On the heels of Singer’s getting fired as director of Bohemian Rhapsody, the director was sued for allegedly sexually assaulting a 17-year-old boy back in 2003.
Singer is one of many Hollywood players being accused of sexual misconduct, and the growing list includes the likes of Harvey Weinstein, John Lasseter, Kevin Spacey, and Louis CK.
