Bryan Singer is reportedly developing a ‘Red Sonja’ TV series


The usually very reliable Bleeding Cool are reporting that X-Men director Bryan Singer is actively developing an R-rated TV series based on the comic book Red Sonja.

The site reports that The Weinstein Company/ Dimension are putting up the money for the series, though it’s not known which channel it’ll end up on. They, and we guess it’ll either be Showtime, HBO, or either Netflix or Amazon.

The character of Red Sonja originated from the world of Conan The Barbarian, and was adapted into a 1985 movie that starred Brigette Nielson and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Here’s the synopsis for that movie. More news on the TV series as we get it.

Power-hungry Queen Gedren (Sandahl Bergman) captures the priestesses guarding the Talisman, a mystical orb that created and can destroy the world. But one of the priestesses escapes and seeks out her warrior sister, Red Sonja (Brigitte Nielsen), to warn her about Gedren’s plan for world domination. Lord Kalidor (Arnold Schwarzenegger), the Talisman’s keeper, insists on helping Sonja, and though she scorns the assistance of any man, she soon gains respect for Kalidor’s fighting prowess.
