A new documentary chronicling sex abuse in Hollywood will reveal more details on director Bryan Singer, who was accused of sexually abusing actor Michael Egan on the set of X-Men.

Director Amy Berg has been working on the film, which aims to uncover sex abuse in Hollywood, since 2012, Gawker reported.

Ms. Berg is well known in the film community for her Academy-award nominated documentary “Deliver Us From Evil,” which highlighted sex abuse in the Catholic Church.

An anonymous source told The Daily Mail that the film crew was investigating cases of child molestation in connection with Mr. Egan.

“Just this week, I got a message from Disarming Films, a documentary film company working out of Los Angeles,” the source told The Mail.

“They said they are making a documentary about a bunch of children molested by somebody in the film industry. I never contacted them back. They wanted videos and pictures of Michael and a few others he knew.”

“The film company said they were working on numerous children, now adults, now coming forward about this,” the source continued.

Ms. Berg was surprised that Mr. Egan had come forward about the issue after filing a lawsuit against Singer, Gawker reported. Ms. Berg told the news agency that Mr. Egan is working on the film with her, but no release date has been announced.
