Disgraced Hollywood producer, Bryan Singer's upcoming movie, 'Red Sonja' has been put "on hold" due to the recent controversy surrounding allegations of sexual misconduct.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Millennium Films is giving the project the red light and will not be shopping the click at this year's European Film Market in Berlin.
When The Atlantic posted their article which accused Singer of assaulting several underage boys, Millennium Films CEO Avi Lerner released a statement defending Singer.
"I continue to be in development for Red Sonja and Bryan Singer continues to be attached. 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 said in a statement to THR.
Before quickly changing his tune:
"I don't want to apologize. I just want to clarify [the statement]," Lerner told THR last month. "I think victims should be heard and this allegation should be taken very, very seriously. I just don't agree to judge by the Twitter. I want [the accused] to be judged by the court."
