Not sure if there have been fresh allegations about Singer but he was cleared of charges back in 2014

And this happened to his accuser about a year later

Hmmm...worryingly, his accusation against Singer is the only one that still stands (well, it did back in 2015 after he dropped the other claims).

I watched him in a very revealing documentary about child sex abuse in the film business and he was more than convincing. By lying (and we don't know if he lied about everything), he has also belittled the true victims...and that to me is unforgivable.

I do not think it is any secret in the film world that Singer likes young-looking men; but, of course, that does not make him a paedophile or an abuser. The jury's out, people. For now.

Bryan Singer has not updated instagram since 1.november. He used to have updates several times a week, so something has happened here.

Yes it's called being busy making a film.

Strong rumour circulating around my neck of the woods, that they'll shortly be shooting "bits" of the film at an old church.

Hmmm. A church? Only connection I can think of, is Wessex Studios is a converted old church. Two and two make... erm, maths never was my strong subject.

Anyway, if it's true, then the show must go on.

No, I don't believe it is just because the film is keeping Singer busy; it is too coincidental that his Twitter account has vanished without a trace - just after a poster openly accused him of abusing them (14 sperate tweets detailing what he did to him) and at the same time as all the Hollywood sexual allegations were floating around. His instagram account used to be updated very regularly - and now, as Another_Roger rightly stated - there has been nothing new for about three weeks.

I think he is keeping his head down, talking to his legal team...and keeping his fingers crossed.

Not buying that. He updated daily on twitter and instagram before the case came up. He was busy with shoothing at this point as well.

I'm quietly optimistic about this. The photo I saw of Rami Malek in costume looks really good. Hopefully it's the movie we want and deserve.

Can they find someone else to finish directing this? I'm really excited for this film and don't want this kind of bad press associated with it!!!

He's trending in the top 10 on Twitter all of a sudden here in the States...just fire him, pay him, and get his name 1,000 miles away from this project.

It's, literally, the last thing this movie needs.

My gut tells me it will be shelved.

Or how I'll be saved

Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~
