  • Bryan Singer Replaced By Dexter Fletcher To Direct'Bohemian Rhapsody

Twentieth Century Fox has rehired Dexter Fletcher to replace Bryan Singer as director of "Bohemian Rhapsody", a biopic on the life of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. He made his directorial debut with 2011's Wild Bill and most recently directed 2016's Eddie the Eagle, about the British ski jumper who took the 1988 Winter Olympics by storm.

It was necessitated, of course, after Singer failed to return to the set in London following the Thanksgiving holiday break. Yet Singer claimed in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter that he was sacked because Fox would not let him take care of a "gravely ill parent".

Malek, who plays Mercury, also reportedly complained to the studio, 'charging Singer with not being present on set, unreliability and unprofessionalism, ' said The Hollywood Reporter.

Bohemian Rhapsody stars Malek as Mercury, Ben Hardy as drummer Roger Taylor, Gwilym Lee as lead guitarist Brian May, and Joe Mazzello as bass guitarist John Deacon. He added, "This was a very taxing experience, which ultimately took a serious toll on my own health".

"Unfortunately, the studio was unwilling to accommodate me and terminated my services", he continued. "This was not my decision and it was beyond my control".

"Bohemian Rhapsody" will chart the rock band's story up to their appearance at the Live Aid charity concert in 1985.

With about two weeks left in the film's shooting schedule - if Fletcher does not opt to reshoot anything - Fox is still aiming for a December 2018 release date.

The move was announced Monday, with sources citing excessive absences and lateness as well as conflicts with the film's star Rami Malek, The Wrap reported.

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