Simon Halls to Washington Post: I No Longer Represent Bryan Singer

As the director of four “X-Men” films, Bryan Singer has shaped numerous stories about Charles Xavier and his telepathic abilities. Not even Professor X himself, however, might be able to divine what’s happening with the director, who disappeared from the set of his new movie, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” last week and might not be back for four weeks — or at all.,,

The director’s longtime publicist Simon Halls, meanwhile, told The Washington Post on Monday that he no longer represented the director and declined to explain why. The representative for Graham King, the producer-financer for whom “Bohemian Rhapsody” has long been a passion project, did not respond to a request for comment.

The “X-Men” director, who is facing sexual abuse allegations, went missing from the set of the Queen biopic last week.

Frankly I don't mind him not directing any more movies after it blows up on him. I thought all the X-Men films were badly done and could have been so much better than they were. Oh, and the kid thing too, that's bad, I guess.

That's a thread titled "Matt Bomer and Simon Halls". I know there's information tucked in there about it, but this is a new event and doesn't really fit in that subject line, so I think it's perfectly fine that there's a new thread about it.

Been here for years, r17, I just haven't read the ridiculously long threads on Simon Halls and Bryan Singer. I know the gist of it and have seen things in other threads as well as on other sites, but I don't remember specifically what Seann William Scott has to do with any of it. Care to illuminate?

replies 19Dec 4, 2017 12:19 PM +00:00

R18 And? If he helped cover up immoral and illegal activities - and to preserve Singer's image you have to - that still makes him culpable. Or do you actually agree with the whole "only following orders" bullshit?

I would just like to draw your attention to the excellent pun-ery at play in the end of the article that OP posted:

"Numerous actors, including Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Whishaw, were attached to play Mercury, and the number of writers and directors involved with it is nearly as long as Queen’s list of top 40 hits. King’s deep investment in the project likely ensures the show will go on, though how it will break free remains in question."

--That is all.

I don't see how Rami Malek would be anybody's choice to play Freddie Mercury, but who knows, he may knock it out of the park.

From what I understand, word of mouth from friends in the know, Singer has been disappearing from the set for hours at a time, or coming in late, leaving early, ever since the Weinstein story broke. Sometimes he wouldn’t show up at all.

So this behavior didn’t just start. Now he’s completely “gone”, and has been, hence the firing. I have no info as of yet.

I apologize if this has already been posted in the Halls/Bomer thread. I have been really busy and haven’t had time to go through them.

But yes, he’s been MIA.
