EXCLUSIVE: In a surprising twist, we learned that Brett Ratner is lining up a directorial comeback on his longtime project on pop duo Milli Vanilli.

Millennium Media is teaming up with Ratner’s RatPac Entertainment on the project and kicking off sales ahead of the next virtual EFM.

This would mark Ratner’s first feature film director post since 2014. Hercules.

In November 2017, seven actresses, including Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge, accused the filmmaker of sexual harassment and misconduct, causing Warner Bros. to sever all ties with the producer-director with whom they had a lucrative deal.

Ratner, who has denied the allegations, had kept a low profile from then until recently joining the ongoing GameStop frenzy by reclaiming the lifetime rights of WallStreetBets founders Jaime and Joel Rogozinski.
