The troubles continue.
Bryan Singer is reportedly no longer directing Red Sonja following the allegations surrounding the director.
As reported by THR, Bryan Singer has possibly been dropped as director of Red Sonja because of the allegations that he sexually assaulted underaged boys and that Avi Lerner, founder and CEO of Millennium Films, has been unable to “secure a domestic distributor” because of it.
Last month, THR also reported that the Conan spinoff Red Sonja had been put on hold for a similar reason, but no confirmation of his departure as director was confirmed.
Singer was announced as the director of the troubled film last year and was said to be looking for $10 million to helm the movie.
This move was controversial as it followed the X-Men director’s departure as executive producer on Legion that occurred in light of the allegations.
Red Sonja, which was also a feature film in 1985 and starred Brigitte Nielsen and Arnold Schwarzenegger, was revealed again in 2017 and Lerner had said then that they “have been waiting for the right time for this remake and with the success of Wonder Woman, the audience has spoken, they want female heroes.”
