I had this written up in the other Singer thread so:
This is the dude (Lerner) who is producing it:
The suit also alleges that Lerner hired “unqualified girlfriends” to produce his films, and encouraged young women to wear revealing clothing — without underwear — around the office. When the plaintiff complained about the company’s hiring practices, she was told that “the girls” were valuable to the company because they helped procure prostitutes for actors working with the company and for Lerner’s friends, according to the suit.
Uh yeah weren't there already credible accusations against him during the making of Days of Future Past, 5 years ago? And then he gets X-Men Apocalypse. And then he gets Bohemian Rhapsody. And then he gets Red Sonja.
Not like you haven't had time to adjust here people. 5+ years!
My thoughts as well. Singer's a thoroughly mediocre filmmaker in the first place that the first whiff of these disgusting allegations should've been enough to get his number dropped from every major producer's Rolodex, but we got Jack the Giant Slayer instead.
Millennium Films’ Red Sonja film with Bryan Singer is being put on the back burner. After the movie was on the slate last year at the American Film Market, the prolific U.S. 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.”
Embattled Bohemian Rhapsody director Singer has not been formally removed from Red Sonja, but Millennium’s statement seems to at least acknowledge the filmmaker may not be the right fit for the movie at this juncture.
The big-budget action-fantasy film, which has been on the The Expendables outfit’s slate for more than a decade, was expected to shoot this year in Bulgaria, but that won’t be happening. Cast has not been set.
