Millennium Films has put its new big-budget action-fantasy adaptation of the sword-wielding heroine comic “Red Sonja,” which has had filmmaker Bryan Singer attached to direct, on hold reports Deadline.
The project has been in the works on-and-off for a decade but recently picked up steam and was for sale at AFM late last year. Now though, Millennium tells the trade: “the project is not on the slate at the moment and is not for sale at the EFM in Berlin.”
Singer has not been formally removed from the project in the wake of multiple sexual misconduct allegations including a recent Atlantic expose. Singer has vehemently denied wrongdoing but the reports have been enough to lead to scrutiny over his attachment to “Red Sonja”.
The plan was to shoot this year in Bulgaria, but that will no longer happen and no cast has yet been set.
