RED SONJA Movie Finds New Writers In TOMB RAIDER Showrunner Tasha Huo And Director Joey Soloway

After public outcry following the news that Bryan Singer would direct Red Sonja, Millennium went back to the drawing board, and the movie has now found a new creative team as the casting process begins...

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that work is finally heating up on Red Sonja, as Millennium has turned to Tasha Huo to pen the movie's screenplay. She's set to write the script alongside recently announced director Joey Soloway, and is considered to be something of a rising star in Hollywood.

Netflix recently tapped Huo to serve as showrunner and executive producer on the animated Tomb Raider TV series which is being developed for the streaming service by Legendary.

Based on the Dynamite Entertainment comic book franchise, a Red Sonja movie has been in the works at Millennium for close to a decade. X-Men director Bryan Singer was attached to helm, but dropped out after backlash that he was involved in the female-led movie after those damning allegations against him (regarding his conduct with young men on his previous projects and in his personal life).

"I have loved Red Sonja forever and I feel so honored to help shepherd her story and start this cinematic journey. There could not be a greater moment in our world for Red Sonja's ways of wielding power and her connection with nature and our planet," Soloway tells the trade. "She is an ancient heroine with an epic calling, and translating that to the screen is a dream come true for me as a filmmaker. I can't wait to collaborate with Tasha on this vision."

Millennium co-president Jonathan Younger adds: "We’re very excited to be bringing Red Sonja to the market and the world. This has been a long time coming. Having Joey Soloway at the helm of this feminist icon franchise is the perfect recipe for a magical adventure, which is exactly what the world needs today."

Casting for the lead character has begun, so we'll hopefully hear more about that very soon...
