Will Fox Replace Bryan Singer on X-Men Apocalypse Over Underage Sex Scandal?

That's what rumors making their way around the web are saying.

From a report on Radar Online that we read about on Bleeding Cool, rumor has it Fox is looking into replacing Bryan Singer as director on X-Men: Apocalypse, the follow-up to Days of Future Past, which is in theaters now, as a result of the recent string of sexual abuse allegations leveled against the director in lawsuits. According to the rumor, Fox doesn't actually give a crap whether Singer is innocent or guilty. They simply don't want the potential court case to interrupt the production and cost them money. According to Radar's top secret industry insider source, discussions over who could replace Singer as director have been heated and caused walkouts. Regardless of what happens, Singer would still produce and be paid for the film.

Singer was implicated in a lawsuit alleging that he and several others, including Masters of the Universe director Gary Goddard, were involved in an "underage Hollywood sex ring" that led to the sexual abuse of underage Michael Egan. Shortly after, a British man represented by the same attorney as Egan filed a second lawsuit claiming Goddard used drugs and alcohol to entice the man (underage at the time) into attending an after-party for the Superman Returns premiere at which Singer and Goddard sexually assaulted the man. Singer's lawyers refute the claims, and say they have evidence providing singer with alibis during the incidents named in the lawsuits. Singer has not been served with either lawsuit, which Singer's lawyers claim is because they know the suits will be immediately dismissed. Egan recently voluntarily dismissed a lawsuit against Disney executive David Neuman, which was part of the original series of allegations.

If this were one of our usual snarky articles, I'd probably point out that Neuman commented on the dismissal in a prepared statement saying, here in his car, he feels safest of all, due to the ability to lock all his doors. It's the only way to live, we would have said that he added, if this weren't such a serious subject. Do you get it? It's because we would have confused David Neuman for eighties new wave star Gary Numan. Ha! I kill me (that's another eighties reference).

And just in case you thought wealthy Hollywood big shots who throw elaborate sex parties at their mansions don't have feelings, Singer is also reportedly going through his circle of friends and cutting out anybody who talks shit about him behind his back. According to the anonymous source, if Days of Future Past continues to do well at the box office, the chances of Singer being replaced will be lessened..
