Director Bryan Singer’s latest, and only, upcoming film project “Red Sonja” has been delayed.

Deadline reports that the film remake of the comic book has been shelved.

“The project is not on the slate at the moment and is not for sale at the EFM in Berlin,” production company Millennium Films told Deadline.

“Red Sonja” was scheduled to start filming in Bulgaria later this year.

The decision comes just weeks after The Atlantic published a story which included interviews with four men who allege that Singer sexually assaulted them while they were underage.

Singer has denied the accusations calling the story “a homophobic smear piece.”

Singer’s sexual misconduct allegations did have some affect on the Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Although Singer was removed from the film after becoming a no-show on set, his name is still attached to the project. GLAAD made the decision to remove “Bohemian Rhapsody” from consideration in its GLAAD Media Awards due to the allegations.

However, “Bohemian Rhapsody” grossed more than $800 million at the box office making it the highest selling music biopic.
