The Latest On The Queen/Freddie Mercury Biopic Drama

Bryan Singer fired from Freddie Mercury biopic

Director Bryan Singer has been fired from the upcoming Queen/Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

This is not first time that Singer has disappeared during a production.

Singer then addressed reports that his termination was catalyzed by a non-physical confrontation with Malek that allegedly ended in Singer throwing an object.

There had been rumours that Bryan left because of ongoing disagreements with leading star Rami Malek, though the director insisted that any dispute between them has been sorted out.

At the time, Singer's camp said that he was dealing with an sudden health issue, while producers Fox, New Regency and Graham King said that the production suspension was due to Singer's "unexpected unavailability".

"'Bohemian Rhapsody' is a passion project of mine", Singer said.

"Bryan Singer is no longer the director of Bohemian Rhapsody", a studio spokesperson said in a statement. Fox had to shut down production on December 1 because Singer's absences caused a growing rift between the filmmaker and star Rami Malek, who complained to Fox, "charging Singer with not being present on set, unreliability and unprofessionalism".

That prompted the studio to suspend production with three weeks of principal photography left before eventually firing Singer on Monday.

The hotly-anticipated movie about the life of the iconic Queen frontman was put on hold earlier this week after Singer failed to return to the set after Thanksgiving due to a "personal health matter concerning Bryan and his family". In some instances, the movie's cinematographer, Thomas Newton Sigel, had to take the directing reins in Singer's absence. Following his no show the studio chose to end his contract. Now, 20th Century Fox have confirmed that he is no longer directing the film.

No word yet on his replacement, but an announcement is expected in the next few days. One source told THR Singer is claiming he's suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder because of tension on the set.

Also, Singer's production company Bad Hat Harry has been removed entirely from the Fox production offices, following decades of profitable work, especially involving the X-Men franchise, of which Singer had directed four of the entries.
