Though she’s not totally against Bryan Singer doing it (“I personally think that Singer is a great director. I also think every allegation should be investigated”), original “Red Sonja’ Brigitte Nielsen tells The Hollywood Reporter it wouldn’t be a bad idea to have a female helm Millennium’s long gestating reboot.

“..why don’t they go with a great female director? Like Susanne Bier, a great Danish director? That would be fantastic! And she would put me in Red Sonja because I need to be in there! Or you could do Patty Jenkins! She’s an incredible director! This is a huge female character and I can see a fantastic female director.”

Nielsen, who is promoting her role in “Creed II” for the home entertainment release, jokingly adds “Let me have my first project as a director! I’ll do it! (Laughs) I’m kidding. But a female director wouldn’t be a bad idea if Singer is eventually off the project for whatever is going to happen. I’m not one to say.”

Nielsen isn’t convinced she’ll be asked to appear in it, knowing the film will distance itself from the ’80s original.

“I mean, of course, we all know it would be a remake more than a sequel, but it’s not an easy task. It really is not an easy task to bring Red Sonja back … but she needs to be around. She’s amazing and she’s beautiful and clever and she’s all of the things that true gorgeous women are!”

In the interview, the actress also hints at a possible ‘Drago’ family movie, spinning-off from “Creed”, in the future.
