In today’s BUT FREAKING WHY news, it would appear that Bryan Singer is currently in talks to direct the upcoming live-action feature film adaptation of Red Sonja from Millennium.
This is troubling news, to say the least, considering Singer’s recent firing from 20th Century Fox due to his mismanagement of their Queen biopic film, Bohemian Rhapsody. There are also the rape allegations brought forth against the filmmaker to consider here.
Why would a studio pick this particular person to helm a FEMALE CENTRIC hero film in the wake of the #MeToo movement?
According to The Hollywood Reporter, sources say ‘Millennium will pay Singer top dollar for the assignment, which is seen as a step toward rehabilitating the director’s image’.
