He has a bad cold?
 
2017-12-02 08:44:02 AM  
He's realizing that a PG-13 biopic of Freddie Mercury can't NOT be a sh*tshow?

Either that, or he diddled someone he shouldn't have. One of the two.

This is not first time that Singer has disappeared during a production. He momentarily vanished during the shooting of X-Men: Apocalypseand during Superman Returns.


"Momentarily"? Seems like there was no director for either of those.
 
2017-12-02 09:25:40 AM  
Maybe he can't find his car keys.
 
2017-12-02 09:28:38 AM  
"his absence is due to a personal health matter concerning Bryan and his family."

Well then, by all means, keep reporting on it as some mysterious disappearance instead of simply saying he has a family emergency. You get more clicks that way.

The point is that is almost certainly a lie and he's disappeared before on other productions.

yeah this is drugs

He's probably used the last of his nine lives in Hollywood this time.
 
2017-12-02 09:45:58 AM  
He's secretly filming a remake of "Where the Boys Are", except it's about a Hollywood big shot and his love of young boys.

Basically, his life's story.

If his drug of choice is underaged males, then you're probably right.

He's negotiating to get Sacha Baron Cohen back on board?

Isn't this the "family friendly" biopic where Mercury is portrayed as a sober heterosexual? I think Singer is doing us all a favor.

I heard the reason Sasha Baron Cohen dropped out was that Mercury's death is about halfway through the movie, and the rest of it is about the courage the rest of the band showed continuing on with that one dude from American Idol singing for them.

This movie needs to get AIDS and die already. No decent Freddie biopic is going to get made until Brian May stops trying to ruin it. The Sasha Barren Cohen version would have been amazeballs. In the meantime, you can read Jim Hutton's Mercury and me, which is incredibly honestly.

I hope he caught wind that an expose is coming, he's circling the wagons, and he's finally going down.

Fark that guy. He's a predator and it's amazing that in all the shiat being slung right now, he's somehow managed to avoid getting caught in the crossfire.
 
2017-12-02 10:29:04 AM  
So maybe "unexpected unavailability" is a Hollywood code like "exhaustion" or "extreme dehydration" but  for "history of sexually assaulting young men is catching up with you" ?

shoegaze99:  I hope he caught wind that an expose is coming, he's circling the wagons, and he's finally going down.

Phrasing.
 
2017-12-02 10:43:33 AM  
So I looked into it and Singer is being sued for sexual assault on a minor, filed on Wednesday. I'd imagine he's taking the day off to burn leaves and take old computer equipment for disposal.

I seem to recall a rumor circulating that he and Kevin Spacey had a huge falling out shooting that movie fighting over the same not quite legal boy.

I got mad respect for Rami Malek, but I'm just not sure he's right for this role. Cohen, IMHO, fits the part much better.

Not shocking. Friend of mine got hit on hard about 12 years ago when he was a drunken young 20's but looked younger. Knew about Kevin but not the extent of it.

Wouldn't really surprise me if him and Bryan had a falling out over some boy bum.

Jessica Chastain made a movie that was propaganda for torture and extraordinary rendition. She might want to be careful in which direction social winds start to blow.

I actually think the press and newly found spine in hollywood may have led to the relapse.  In other words: this is drugs, but he relapsed with the stress of knowing his past assaults and harassment will come to light.

They're reporting it this way because it's the most blatantly obvious lie the planet has produced in the last year outside of the Trump administration.

So... when will the enablers of the Hollyweird sexual predators (i.e. studio executives who covered things up and Hollyweird reporters who knew but took their 30 pieces of silver to STFU) get their time in the spotlight for allowing this shiat to happen without raising a stink?
