Bryan Singer Fired red sonja

Last month, we got word that Red Sonja was on hold in the wake of even more sexual misconduct allegations against director Bryan Singer. Now, it looks like Singer is officially off the movie. The news of Singer’s removal came unceremoniously, buried within a much larger story about a completely different topic. Now let us all cross our fingers and hope we never have to hear about Bryan Singer again.

red sonja movie on hold

Bryan Singer has been mired in allegations of sexual misconduct for a large part of his career, and those allegations have been boiling over in the last year, particularly after Singer was fired from Bohemian Rhapsody for failing to show up for work. Despite Singer’s problems, Millennium Films was willing to plunk down up to $10 million to hire the director to helm their long-delayed Red Sonja movie. But it seems like outcry against this has won out – for now. Millennium has now put the film on hold in the wake of recent allegations against Singer.

Red Sonja Television Series

Another Red Sonja adaptation has been stuck in development hell for years. Plenty of talent has boarded and fallen off the project. Years ago a version starring Rose McGowan and produced by Robert Rodriguez came very close to happening, but it never came to fruition. After years of waiting, director Bryan Singer might be the one to bring this character back to life.

1985 summer movies

July 4th weekend is always a bankable one at the box office. There’s always some kind of major release hitting the big screen to get people as they enjoy some time off for Independence Day, and people flock to theaters to see stuff they missed from the previous weeks or just to see something again with their friends and family.

This past weekend, Jurassic World dominated the box office for a fourth weekend in a row, edging out Pixar’s Inside Out again and keeping Magic Mike XXL and Terminator: Genisys down as well. Those are some big offerings, but back in the summer of 1985, the line-up of movies available in theaters, according to a newspaper clipping, was both impressive and much different as far as the variety of offerings.

Red Sonja movie

Thirty years have passed since audiences were introduced to Red Sonja on the big screen. Envisioned as a female equivalent to Conan, the film starred Brigitte Nielsen as the title character and even featured Arnold Schwarzenegger in a slightly confusing Conan, but non-Conan, role. The sword and sandal fantasy epic was not a big hit and in fact even took home a Razzie award for the actress. Yet fans who found the film when they were younger hold it in high regard and a new Red Sonja movie has been in talks for sometime.

Robert Rodriguez was originally attached with Rose McGowen in the lead. Megan Fox was floated and then Simon West seemingly boarded the film with Amber Heard as the warrior. Now, that has all been wiped clean. No one is attached to Red Sonja except screenwriter Christopher Cosmos. Read More »

Simon West May Direct Amber Heard in ‘Red Sonja’

A Red Sonja film has been percolating for the last few years, kicked off when Rose McGowan was set to star with Robert Rodriguez producing. Teaser artwork was dramatically unveiled, and the film seemed like one of several that would be the fruit of the real-life relationship between the director and his Planet Terror actress. But things changed, and while it seemed for a moment as if the film might survive the end of the Rodriguez/McGowan relationship, that version of Red Sonja has been dead for some time.

The film is still being developed at Nu Image/Millennium, however. Now producer Avi Lerner says that he’s got Simon West set to direct a new version, and that he likes his Drive Angry actress Amber Heard for the title role. Read More »
