Red Sonja Film on Hold Due to Bryan Singer Controversy

The Bryan Singer-directed Red Sonja movie has been put on hold. Millennium Films made the announcement in the wake of a piece by The Atlantic, which dove into the director's alleged history of sexual misconduct. As recently as January, the film was on the slate for the American Film Market, but Millennium now said the project is "not on the slate at the moment."

Following the Atlantic piece on Singer's harassment, Millennium CEO Avi Lerner stood by Singer and said that Red Sonja would continue to be made. Lerner later apologized for those comments and claimed that they "came out the wrong way... I think victims should be heard and this allegation should be taken very, very seriously," he recently said. He wasn't the only one to apologize, as a surviving member of Queen did so for appearing to stand by Singer.

Singer has, for his part, vehemently denied the allegations, but it hasn't stopped him from being omitted from the thanks by the Bohemian Rhapsody crew at the Golden Globes in January. The film's star Rami Malek also admitted that he and Singer often clashed while making the film. Similarly, the film itself was removed from GLAAD's list of film nominees, and Singer's name was taken out of the film's running for BAFTA's Outstanding British Film category.
