Bohemian Rhapsody Finds A Director to Replace Bryan Singer

Bohemian Rhapsody Finds A Director to Replace Bryan Singer

Director Bryan Singer is caught in a landslide with no escape from reality - he was sacked on Monday as director of the upcoming Queen biopic by 20th Century Fox, the studio told the Hollywood Reporter.

While we can sympathize with Singer for the issues in his personal life, we must also take into account the early reports of his "unprofessional" behaviour on the set of not only Bohemian Rhapsody, but of previous movies also.

Deadline is reporting that Fox has hired Fletcher, best known for Eddie the Eagle and Proclaimers musical Sunshine on Leith, to shepherd the final two weeks of production on the film, as well as potential reshoots.

The studio is expected to announce a replacement director later this week.

Bryan Singer has accused Fox of refusing to give him time off to deal with health issues of one of his parents, which is why he says he was sacked from Queen biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody".

As LRM (and everyone else on the internet) reported yesterday, Singer was sacked from the project due to his erratic and unprofessional behavior. "This was not my decision and it was beyond my control".

The studio's decision to terminate Singer came after an escalating clash between the director and Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek, who is playing Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. Cinematographer Thomas Newton Sigel reportedly filled in for him on some of the days he was gone.

"I wanted nothing more than to be able to finish the project and help honor the legacy of Freddie Mercury and Queen", Singer stated.

What do you think about Bryan Singer's statement?

Fletcher replaces Bryan Singer, who was sacked earlier in the week, Twentieth Century Fox Film told the Daily News.

A representative for Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp. says Monday that Singer is no longer the director of the film. That remains unconfirmed for now, but it's clear that there's some trouble brewing behind the scenes and we can only hope that it all gets resolved sooner rather than later. Tom Hollander, who plays Queen manager Jim Beach, is said to have quietly quit the film but was later convinced to return, and Malek is said to have complained to the studio about the director's "unreliability and unprofessionalism". Singer's production outfit has co-produced every instalment of the X-Men film series to date and filming on next year's Dark Pheonix wrapped in October.
