Bryan Singer to Cameo in Gus van Sant’s Harvey Milk Film?


Bryan Singer, who was working on a competing Harvey Milk film project (The Mayor of Castro Street) when Gus van Sant’s Milk sped in into production, may cameo in van Sant’s film, Portland’s Williamette Week reports:

“In the battle of the gay directors and even gayer projects, score one for Portland’s own Gus Van Sant , who has extended an ‘olive branch’ to Bryan Singer —the X-Men director he beat out for the biopic on San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk. Singer himself is expected to make a cameo appearance in Gus’ film, Milk, about the life and death of the ‘Mayor of Castro Street.’ When asked to confirm, Van Sant said he had his fingers crossed that Singer will join his cast. ‘We hope so,’ Van Sant told WW in between takes on the San Francisco set. ‘He said that he will, but scheduling is hard.'”

Last we heard, Singer’s project was looking unlikely to come to fruition.
