SEX SCANDAL COULD PREVENT SINGER FROM DIRECTING NEW X-MEN

Concerned that Michael Egan’s lawsuit against Bryan Singer alleging sex abuse could impact production, Twentieth Century Fox may not allow Singer to direct X-Men: Apocalypse, the last film in the projected X-Men trilogy, Radar Online reported today (Monday), citing an unnamed source. “Bryan’s lawyers are going nuts because the deal [for Apocalypse] was closed months ago,” the source was quoted as saying. Although Singer’s lawyers have shown Fox executives what they say is proof that the allegations are fraudulent, the issue is that the lawsuit may not allow Singer to devote full attention to the film. “They don’t really care whether he’s innocent or guilty == they’re only concerned with the bottom line, which is giving him another $250 to $350 million to make Apocalypse,” said Radar’s source. On the other hand, he noted, “Bryan’s lawyers still have not been delivered the cases. It is being dragged out as long as possible because the plaintiff’s now know that as soon as they do deliver the cases, they’ll be dismissed.”
