Despite the PR fiasco that was Bryan Singer getting fired from the set of Bohemian Rhapsody, it looks like Hollywood is still open to giving him jobs. It had been reported before that he was in talks to direct a live-action adaptation of Red Sonja, and now it looks like production is set to start early next year.
According to Discussing Film, Singer's Red Sonja is aiming for a production start in April 2019. We don't have any news on casting as of yet, but we do know that the script is coming from X-Men: First Class writer Ashley Miller. Joe Gatta (Conan the Barbarian), Mark Canton (300), Courtney Solomon (Dungeons and Dragons), and Avi Lerner (The Expendables) are attached to produce the film.
As it turns out, the studio producing the film, Millennium, is aiming for Sonja to be their Wonder Woman franchise. WW was such a ridiculous success last year that it propelled Gal Gadot into an A-List star overnight. With the cards played right, maybe the same thing could happen for Red Sonja.
Last year, it was reported that Bryan Singer was fired from the set of Bohemian Rhapsody after failing to show up multiple times on set. It was also said that he had a spat with star Rami Malek who had been calling his behavior ‘unprofessional.' The movie was then finished by Dexter Fletcher, but Singer still got the sole credit.
With Red Sonja, it's said that Singer is said to be trying to gain back his reputation, but as of now, a lot of fans online aren't pleased that he's doing this film.
No release date has been set for Red Sonja.
