Bryan Singer: Director fired from Freddie Mercury film

Bryan Singer's past directing credits include The Usual Suspects and Superman Returns

 

The director of the new Freddie Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, has been fired due to "unreliable behaviour".

 

The main reason for the firing was "a pattern of unreliable behaviour on the set".

 

In a statement, Twentieth Century Fox said Bryan Singer was no longer the director of the film.

 

But Singer said his firing came while he was ill and that the studio was "unwilling to accommodate" him during his illness.

 

The Hollywood Reporter reported on Monday that Singer had clashed with lead actor Rami Malek and failed to show up for filming on multiple occasions.

 

The studio had earlier said production had been suspended so Singer could deal with "a personal health matter".

 

Filming has been taking place in the UK, with Ben Hardy, Joe Mazzello and Gwilym Lee starring as Queen's other members.

 

The movie is still expected to be released in December 2018 as planned.

 

As well as directing, Singer is listed as a co-producer, alongside Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor, among others, reports BBC.
