X-Men director Bryan Singer is in talks to helm a new film based on Red Sonja, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Film studio Millennium is creating the film and is reportedly "willing to pay top dollar" for Singer to direct.
Last year, Singer was fired from his Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody due to allegations of poor conduct on the set of the film and faced legal action due to alleged an sexual assault dating to 2003, though he was later allowed to return for the editing process, and will receive directorial credit.
THR cites an unnamed Millennium insider who said the studio feels "none of the allegations seem to have merit," and says the film will be an attempt to "rehabilitate" Singer.
A previous Red Sonja adaptation was filmed in the 80s, and starred Brigitte Nielsen and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
No projected release date for the film was reported.
