Is The Singer on a Bender or on the Lam?

Time will tell. Rumors are swirling that he will be replaced on the Mercury biopic.

Is Matt Bomer's husband still shilling for him

by Anonymousreply 212/02/2017

He has gone AWOL on at least 2 other projects, so he may resurface.

This shoot has been a disaster - is it stress, worsening habit, psych issues, the news?

Not what investors or insurance companies like to see, in any event.

Messy lives can't be hidden forever, look at Depp.

Directors are a dime a dozen in Hollywood. Just replace him. Replace him and then delete his phone number from every cell phone in Hollywood.

Ron Howard replaced the two directors on the upcoming Star Wars film so they should get someone to replace Singer. Although I'm sure the Queen band members will want to have control over who is replacing Singer.

DG is a famous member of the velvet mafia. If a mention of him is what killed the other thread, I don't want to spell it out here. But it's pretty obvious. Though there was no gossip about him--just a mention of Israeli security services used in Hollywood.

Let's just say he renamed Avery Fisher Hall.

That is the most aggravating thing I've ever heard, knowing that there are a million other talented directors out there who would kill to be in his position and he just doesn't come in to work some days.

16. ENTERTAINMENT LAWYER 12/02 **#3** Sexual harassment wouldn't get this A list director to stand down and honestly, it probably wouldn't get him fired. He would just be suspended. The underage sex he is trying to write checks for right now though would end his career. Although, cc: Woody Allen. Bryan Singer ("Bohemian Rhapsody")

I think the other thread was more likely deleted because of that troll posting links to songs, which made the thread unusable for any kind of discussion.

[QUOTE]Let's just say he renamed Avery Fisher Hall.

It's hilarious how some posters keep trying to make out that the renaming of Avery Fisher Hall was some kind of big conspiracy. Lincoln Center literally auctioned off the naming rights, and Geffen paid $100 million for them.

[QUOTE]That is the most aggravating thing I've ever heard, knowing that there are a million other talented directors out there who would kill to be in his position and he just doesn't come in to work some days.

Not only that but he's just put a load of people on the crew out of work, and right before Christmas. And there's no guarantee they'll get a job when production resumes, as they may have other projects already lined up when/if production does resume.

There are so many people who could come forward about these velvet mafia guys, who used their success sand power to prey on inncocent (being aspirational is not a guilty position -- those who exploit it are guilty) guys.

He’s probably suffering from some sort of mental disorder and got word of an “Accused” article coming out about him which triggered a breakdown.

by Anonymousreply 4112/04/2017

Wow, this hardly qualifies as a BI since it uses his real name.

[bold]The Disappearing Singer[/bold]

This Singer is in the middle of a big film project. However, he keeps “disappearing” due to a “health problem.”

Ha ha.

Let’s talk about his real problem.

His problem is the decades long, systematic sexual abuse of young boys in the entertainment industry.

If he is having any sort of a “health problem”, it should be a chronic panic attack over the fact that karma and the law are catching up to our mercurial director. About time, right?

Look for him to get replaced on this project soon.

By the way, this Singer is much more likely to direct a musical than to perform in one.

The movie is doomed because the band members of Queen hold the rights to the music, and in order to use it you have to make the movie the way they want r45.

It doesn't matter who is cast really, that is why Sasha Baron Cohen ran away from the project.

They said he kept disappearing while directing X-Men as well so this isn't something new. But not getting along with Malek and the cinematographer having to direct when he doesn't show up... yikes.

If Singer is ever looking for a character witness, he can forget about gay rugby star Ian Roberts, who worked with Singer and Spacey in 2006 on "Superman Returns."

Here's some of what Roberts is saying now about the two:

[quote]“I was really quite excited about working with Kevin Spacey,” Roberts said. “I was on set five or six weeks with him, in close proximity – I played basically his bodyguard in the film, so all the scenes I was in, he was in. “But he was a very difficult person to like.

[quote]“Plus, Bryan Singer the director has also got a dubious past. “Bryan’s history is quite dark.”

[quote] According to Roberts, he was reminded repeatedly that Spacey’s sexuality was not a topic for discussion. “I thought everyone knew Kevin Spacey was gay, I didn’t know it was a secret,” he said. “He’s camp as a row of pink tents. “I didn’t know it was one of those things we couldn’t talk about on set. “I got reminded about that. “I was like ‘really, we’re actually supposed to play dumb here? You’ve got young men, late teenagers, hanging around your trailer’.”

[quote] Roberts said Spacey and Singer appeared to be close on set.

by Anonymousreply 6112/04/2017

Exactly, R32. Even if it's not wrong by law it's still morally wrong, or at the very least devious. It's just gross, whether it's straight directors or gay directors, it doesn't matter, using the casting couch for young vulnerable people is disgusting, even in the case of consensual sex between adults, there's still the power dynamics thing.

by Anonymousreply 6212/04/2017

The fact that he just disappears without telling anyone and lets his DP cover for him for days while in production astonishes me. The fact that he's allowed to keep doing this is insane. I thought despite his pervert proclivities he at least had a work ethic, and that's what was saving him, but he doesn't even have that. TRASH!

R31, I wasn't trying to imply a conspiracy about the renaming of Avery Fisher Hall--I was just trying to give an obvious clue as to whom DG was without saying it because I didn't want this thread shut down and wasn't sure if a mention of DG had caused the earlier shut-down.

I assumed it was a huge donation because that's usually how things get renamed.

Apologies, then R74, in previous threads someone kept going on about him having the power to twist the arms of NY politicians to get the name change, which is why I incorrectly jumped to that conclusion here.
