Bryan Singer looks to be getting a second chance in town close to a year after he was fired off 20th Century Fox’s Bohemian Rhapsody and his studio offices shut down, with the filmmaker in talks to direct Millennium’s Red Sonja remake.
Millennium has been trying to reboot the 1985 Arnold Schwarzenegger film for the past 10 years; at one point director Robert Rodriguez and then-girlfriend Rose McGowan were attached in 2008. The original made under $7 million at the box office.
Millennium’s Avi Lerner and Joe Gatta are producing.
Singer’s exit from Bohemian Rhapsody came after he apparently didn’t show up on set, and claimed that he asked Fox for time off to contend with a parent’s pressing health matter.
Singer was dropped by his agent WME this year, with his attorney David Feldman negotiating the Red Sonja deal. THR had the news on Singer and Red Sonja.
