Bryan Singer in talks to helm Red Sonja film

X-Men director Bryan Singer is possibly up for Millennium’s big screen reboot of Red Sonja.

The X-Men: Apocalypse helmer, who has battled bad PR, lawsuits and continued scrutiny in the post-#MeToo era — none of which seems to have stuck — would take the reins on a big-screen adaptation of the 1970s sword-and-sorcery Conan the Barbarian comic book spinoff. Ashley Miller, who wrote X-Men: First Class (which Singer produced), is writing the screenplay.

Millennium is financing the picture that has been in development for over a decade. With the surge of interest in female-driven films like Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, and Atomic Blonde, the studio wants a female-centric film of their own. In 2008 it came close to happening with director Robert Rodriguez and his then-girlfriend actress Rose McGowan. Rodriguez wanted McGowan to star but the studio did not. Check out what could have been below:

The property previously spawned a 1985 movie starring Brigitte Nielsen and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
