Bryan Singer’s new film is halted


Bohemian Rhapsody director Bryan Singer’s next film Red Sonja has been put on hold amid the backlash around the filmmaker who has faced accusations of sexual misconduct towards a number of men. There are 8 alleged victims so far, Singer denies all the accusations. Since fresh allegations broke in The Atlantic in January, a string of organizations have cut ties with the director—with LGBT charity GLAAD revoking Bohemian Rhapsody‘s award nominations, while Singer’s name was also removed from Bohemian Rhapsody‘s BAFTA nomination. Singer had been set to direct action-fantasy film Red Sonja, based on the comic book hero, who, ironically, experienced a sexual assault and learnt to live after it. The production company Millennium Films has frozen the project for an undefined term, according to Hollywood Reporter and The Deadline. Although there is no formal cancellation for the film, it will not be on sale at an upcoming industry event, the European Film Market in Berlin. The film was set to begin filming in Bulgaria later in 2019, but the casting has not even begun as numerous actors vowed to boycott the disgraced filmmaker
