Michael J. Bassett, the director and screenwriter of Silent Hill 2 and Lioness, is suing the US Immigration Office to save the new Red Sonja comic book adaptation.
The lawsuit alleges that the government is unduly delaying the request to go to Europe to shoot the film. Bassett claimed failure would put the $35 million project in jeopardy.
The complaint also emphasizes that denying the request “will inevitably result in serious financial loss” of at least a million dollars, making it impossible, if not nearly impossible, for the director to reach Hy. Greece and Bulgaria for the preparation and filming, and that is less important, making the film unalterable and thus ending it before the actual work begins.
Earlier, it was reported that pre-production of the new version of “Red Sonja” was scheduled to begin in Bulgaria on March 28, and main filming was scheduled to begin on March 20. 6 year 2022.
The character Red Sonja debuted in the Marvel Comics Conan the Barbarian in the early 70s. A new movie adaptation has been in development for decades. In March, she faced another setback when Millennium Studios announced that Joey Soloway would no longer direct the film and Hannah John-Kamen, who had been scheduled to star in the lead role, dropped out of the project.
