All this even after 4 new allegation
Via Variety (there is more nastiness in the article)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.
there we go.
Yep. Hes dogshit as a talent. And yet... we're here. I mean not dogshit but, nothing spectacular.
I've long hated him, just at this point that is where I am. I did the scumbag thing the past 10 threads on it.
He’s such a middling director that it makes me believe the theory he has dirt on people who have attended his parties. Probably tons of powerful Hollywood people know he can bring them down.
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.
Keep in mind that at the time, he had Rose McGowan in mind for the part, as they were dating. They split a year later, and I think that was around the same time he left the project as well.
Just so interesting how he continuously gets a pass. An Open Secret went out in 2014. Seems like every few months things involving him get discussed.
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.
