The latest adaptation of Robert E. Howard's classic fantasy character was fast-tracked by the studio late last year after the critical and commercial success of Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman. This past April, Ashley Miller officially signed on to write the reboot. Miller has previously worked with Singer on 2011's X-Men: First Class, which Singer produced.

Singer has been facing public scrutiny after multiple accusations of sexual impropriety, including rape, over the past several years. In December, the filmmaker was sued by Cesar Sanchez-Guzman, who accused Singer of raping him in 2003 while Sanchez-Guzman was 17. Additionally, Singer was dropped by his agency, WME, earlier this year in light of the allegations, as well as being fired from the production of this year's upcoming biopic Bohemian Rhapsody for misconduct on set and his frequent absences during filming.
