Deadline reports Millenium Films’ Red Sonja movie is being put on the back burner amid the multiple sexual misconduct allegations made against director Bryan Singer.
Although Millenium Films’ Red Sonja adaptation was on the slate last year at the American Film Market, the studio informed the outlet that “the project is not on the slate at the moment and is not for sale at the EFM in Berlin.” While the outlet notes Milleniums’ statement seems to acknowledge Bryan Singer may not be the right choice for the project at this point, the filmmaker has not been formally removed from the Red Sonja film. The project was expected to begin production in Bulgaria this year, though this is no longer the case and a cast has not been set for the film.
Bryan Singer is the subject of multiple sexual misconduct allegations, though the filmmaker denies any wrongdoing. To date, the filmmaker has not been charged or convicted of a crime.
In the comics, Red Sonja is a sword-wielding heroine with a dark backstory including her sexual assault. Known as the “She-Devil with a Sword,” she is the greatest swordswoman of the Hyborean Age.

Suicide Squad Characters That Can Appear In The James Gunn Sequel
James Gunn is directing The Suicide Squad for Warner Bros. but that comes at a cost.
When the first Suicide Squad was about to hit theaters DC fans were completely ecstatic. The trailers looked great and the feel of the movie was much different than the darkness that preceded it in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This movie was expected to be one of DC’s biggest hits and it turned out to be one of the biggest let-downs of all time.
Suicide Squad was bad and its reviews reflected that. It was one of the only movies I’ve ever been upset at and it made me want to leave the theater. A sequel was announced because the film did well at the box office, going through a number of drafts until James Gunn was brought on to write it. With James Gunn now officially set to direct The Suicide Squad, it looks like the film will be a bit of a soft reboot.
Last night was a bit of a DC maelstrom of news. We got the release dates and official titles of Matt Reeves’ The Batman and James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. Both movies will be hitting theaters in Summer 2021. Throughout all of the chaos a small tidbit surfaced about The Suicide Squad: the James Gunn-directed film will be some sort of relaunch with new characters and actors. Here are the characters I think James Gunn should introduce in his Suicide Squad movie. Hit Next to view all of my choices.
