  • Red Sonja Millenium Films Bryan Singer

The studio producing "Bohemian Rhapsody" director Bryan Singer's new movie "Red Sonja" has dropped the project, after an investigation in The Atlantic detailed Singer's history of alleged sexual assault involving minors. After the movie was on the slate a year ago at the American Film Market, the prolific USA mini-studio has told us, "the project is not on the slate at the moment and is not for sale at the EFM in Berlin". If you ask us, there are many directors capable of handling a red Sonja film. Remarkably, Bohemian Rhapsody grossed $800,000,000 and was nominated for several awards, despite the allegations against Singer. Talking about the article, Lerner released an official statement, "I know the difference between agenda driven fake news and reality, and I am very comfortable with this decision".

Singer has denied all allegations of abuse, and called The Atlantic's reporting "a homophobic smear piece", claiming it was meant to damage "Bohemian Rhapsody", a major box-office hit and Oscar contender.

Previously, the spokesperson said that people are innocent before proven guilty.

Barcelona reach deal with Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic
The 21-year-old joined Benfica in 2016, but has been on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt since the start of the 2017/18 campaign. Barcelona are closing in on a deal to sign Chelsea target Luka Jovic , according to a report from Frankfurter Allgemeine .

The film-maker had been named in the Outstanding British Film category but the academy said his nomination was suspended "effective immediately".

Singer was sacked from Bohemian Rhapsody just weeks before its completion though he is still credited as a director, a fact that producers hope does not impact its chances at the Oscars later this month. "Bohemian Rhapsody" also lost its GLAAD Award nomination over the new accusations against Singer. Fletcher came on board to direct in December after Fox fired Singer from the project after repeated absences from the set had forced the studio to halt production. Red Sonja is a spin-off of Conan the Barbarian and is meant to kick off a new franchise for Millennium, one with a female lead at its center. The character was introduced in 1934 in Robert E. Howard's story "The Legend of the Vulture".

However, looks like Singer's future with the film is looking bleak as Millennium Films has put the action flick on hold amid controversy. "We will continue to stand with survivors of sexual assault and join with other organizations in refusing to remain silent when it comes to protecting them".
