Jill Soloway Replaces Bryan Singer As Director of ‘Red Sonja’

Jill Soloway replaces Bryan Singer as director of "Red Sonja."

The project had been shelved since February following rape allegations against the X-Men director.

Alleged rapist Bryan Singer is out of a job, and I allegedly could not be happier.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Millennium Films has officially tapped Jill Soloway to take over as the director of Red Sonja. The film, a big-screen adaptation of a comic book character who first appeared in Marvel Comics' Conan the Barbarian, had previously been helmed by the Bohemian Rhapsody director, but Millennium put the project on hold after The Atlantic published an extensive, investigative report that detailed all of the rape allegations that had haunted the gay Hollywood rumor mill for decades.

Soloway is best known as the creator of Transparent, which will conclude with a musical finale in lieu of a more typical, episodic fifth season. They've won two Primetime Emmy Awards for directing, both for episodes of Transparent, and they also won a directing award at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival for their pre-Transparent film, Afternoon Delight. Singer also won an award at Sundance for his 1993 drama, Public Access -- the movie that catapulted him to success and let him accumulate all the money, power, and access that would allow him to allegedly do all of that allegedly horrible shit he's been accused of having allegedly done.

Well, while we're on the subject, you can't really talk about assault allegations and Transparent without mentioning the allegations against ousted Transparent star Jeffrey Tambor, which Soloway later admitted to mishandling at first in order to "protect the show."
