We all know that Bryan Singer caused total chaos during production of “Bohemian Rhapsody,’” to the point where, on some days, he would just not show up on-set at all. At some point, Fox higher-ups had enough of his erratic behavior and demanded that Singer be fired from ‘Bohemian’. Replacing him was Dexter Fletcher, who is the director of the upcoming Elton John biopic “Rocket Man.” Supposedly there wasn’t much left to shoot (around weeks), but Fletcher came in to complete the film at the behest of old pal Rami Malek would seems to have pleaded to Fletcher to come and save the movie.Read More
It was strange that Millennium Films were sticking to their guns and defending Bryan Singer’s involvement as director for the upcoming “Red Sonja,” after all, the filmmaker was all but shunned by the industry amidst multiple sexual abuse allegations. However, it does appear like the studio has finally decided to give Singer the ax.
The Hollywood Reporter has a report stating that Singer is no longer involved with the film. Prior to today’s news, Millennium head Avi Lerner was a persistent defender of Singer’s, despite all of the allegations that were continuing to surface against the director. Lerner even went as far as releasing a statement in support of Singer, calling the backlash against his friend "agenda driven," adding that he knew the difference between "fake news and reality, and [that he was] very comfortable with this decision. In America people are innocent until proven otherwise."
The problem is that, despite his avid defense, Lerner was not able to get a single domestic distributor to touch the project, let alone even negotiate with him unless Singer was a goner. Money talks.
Millennium Films, after much resistance, have finally decided to temporarily shelf Bryan Singer’s “Red Sonja” due to the alleged misconduct that has come out in recent months about his past history with underaged boys.
Singer has all but been shunned by the critical community, not to mention his Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” star Rami Malek who actually refuses to thank him in any speech he gives whenever winning his best actor awards, it most recently happened again last night at the BAFTAs where Malek decided to thank Singer’s two-week replacement on the Queen biopic Dexter Fletcher instead. Hilarious.
The CEO of Millennium Films, the studio behind Singer’s latest “Red Sonja,” stood by Singer in a recent THR report. Avi Lerner claimed the allegations of sexual misconduct aimed at Singer were “agenda driven fake news.”
Despite all that, “Red Sonja” has been put on hold.

They have contacted my friends, colleagues, and people I don’t even know.” He continues on by saying that the upcoming exposée is an example of a recurrent trend these days where “careers are being harmed by mere accusations.”Read More
