It’s been revealed by Olivia Munn that Bryan Singer just left X-Men: Apocalypse’s set for 10 days and just told them to carry on without him.
Bryan Singer now has a reputation of just leaving the set of movies he’s supposedly directing.
We already heard that he left the set of Bohemian Rhapsody half way through the production of that movie.
Somehow, he was still credited as the director of that film.
Olivia Munn, who play Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse, recently revealed to Variety that he also left that movie’s set for a long time.
She told the outlet that he left for the set for 10 days and told them to carry on without him.
Bryan Singer just left X-Men: Apocalypse’s set for 10 days
Here’s what Munn said about Singer’s disappearance from Apocalypse’s set:
It’s the problem that I always had in this business, way before the #MeToo movement exposed so much. You’re in it and you see these people who keep failing up, and they’re not that great and you think, ‘Really?’ When we shot ‘X-Men,’ I never shot a huge movie like that before. I didn’t know what was right or wrong, but I did know that it seems strange that Bryan Singer could check out and say he had a thyroid issue.
Instead of going to a doctor in Montreal, which is a very high-level, working city, he said he had to go to L.A. And he was gone for about 10 days is my recollection. And he said, ‘Continue. Keep filming.’ We’d be on set, I remember there’s a big scene that we’d have, and we’d come back from lunch and then one of Bryan’s assistants would come up and show us a cell phone with a text message on it. And he texted to the actors, ‘Hey guys. I’m busy right now. But just go ahead and start filming without me.’
