NEW: ‘Red Sonja’ “Put On Back Burner”
We continue to believe Bryan Singer will not direct ‘Red Sonja’
His career is finished & more victims of his child sex abuse will come forward
Another step in confirming our predictions correct! https://t.co/01a8XZ0P8J
"Hmmm... everyone's yelling at us about Bryan Singer directing our RED SONJA movie. Man... I guess the problem is RED SONJA, so let's shelve the film INSTEAD OF, YOU KNOW, FIRING BRYAN SINGER."
BREAKING: Millennium Films puts Bryan Singer's RED SONJA on the back-burner. It had been expected to shoot later this year, but “the project is not on the slate at the moment and is not for sale at the EFM in Berlin.”
Male bullshit hurting female screen heroes again. How about Karyn Kusama's Red Sonja? Lexi Alexander's Red Sonja? Anna Biller? Dee Rees? Veena Sud? Gina Prince-Bythewood? Debra Granik? There must be many women directors who want the gig and have the time. https://t.co/roTWdM2nme
It's honestly embarrassing that we have to publicly embarrass companies into not paying accused rapists 8-figure sums to direct movies instead of, you know, them just not doing that in the first place.
Please expand your lists and your mind beyond the three female directors you know and/or follow when it comes to who could direct Red Sonja.
I’m not even trying to be shady but I’m tired of the same three names.
Thank you Millennium Films for putting Red Sonja on hold after survivors of sexual assault spoke out against director Bryan Singer. The industry needs to hold those who perpetuate harms against anyone – especially vulnerable young people – accountable for their actions. https://t.co/cJtcQURPnj
"Singer has not been formally removed from Red Sonja, but Millennium’s statement seems to at least acknowledge the filmmaker may not be the right fit for the movie at this juncture."
Keep it, fools. https://t.co/yNidhs3cob
The problem with "PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE just hire a woman to direct Red Sonja!" is that its like asking CBS to get more female showrunners in the Moonves era. The rot starts at the top and the guy in charge is a predator. Don't put a woman filmmaker in that environment.
Fuck Bryan Singer in every way, shape and form for the disgusting human being he is, but also fuck Avi Lerner for refusing to remove him as director, which has now resulted in the Red Sonja movie being shelved.
I just really wanted a new Red Sonja movie :( Just not with rapists.
@deadletterpoets tbh I'd rather a studio that knows better make this movie instead of a studio that obviously had a very wrongheaded approach to Red Sonja to begin with if they thought Bryan Singer was a good choice for director
