There's a new documentary in the works about Hollywood sex abuse, and the man who recently accused director Bryan Singer of rape has been cooperating with the director.

The film is being directed by Amy Berg, who was nominated for an Oscar for "Deliver Us from Evil," a documentary about abuse in the Catholic church, and also directed "West of Memphis," a doc about the West Memphis Three, Variety reports.

It's not yet known whether Singer's accuser, Michael Egan, has been interviewed on camera for the movie.

Egan, now 31, claims in a lawsuit filed Wednesday that Singer sexually assaulted him multiple times in Hawaii when he was a teenager. Singer's lawyer has responded that the suit is "absurd and defamatory," and that the director wasn't even in Hawaii at the time. However, the court filing has unleashed an avalanche of rumors, accusations and speculation about the "X-Men" director's sexual behavior.
