Bryan Singer's Red Sonja Delayed Due to Allegations
Bryan Singer's "Red Sonja" has been delayed by Millenium Films due to the sexual misconduct allegations against the director.
A spokeswoman for the studio said, "The project is not on the slate at the moment and is not for sale at the European Film Market in Berlin." She went to say that filming in Bulgaria, which was slated for this year, has also been canceled.
Singer is accused of inappropriate groping and sexual relationships with four young men, including a 13-year-old extra for the film "Apt Pupil". He has denied all allegations.
Millenium's Chairman Avi Lerner commented two weeks ago about previous accusations saying, "The over $800 million ‘Bohemian Rhapsody' has grossed, making it the highest grossing drama in film history, is testament to his remarkable vision and acumen. I know the difference between agenda driven fake news and reality, and I am very comfortable with this decision. In America, people are innocent until proven otherwise." He was again called upon this weekend to comment about the story and said, "The complaints I receive ask why I don't fire him, and the answer is simple: Bryan hasn't been found guilty of anything in court. We take these accusations in all seriousness and we looked into them, but at the moment, from what we gather, they are completely baseless."
