Bryan Singer fired from Queen biopic

Katy Perry in 2012

Officials at 20th Century Fox fired Bryan Singer as director of the Freddie Mercury biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody" on Monday after he failed to show up for work on multiple occasions. This was a very taxing experience, which ultimately took a serious toll on my own health.

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

This is alleged to have led to a confrontation between Singer and Malek that resulted with the director throwing an object (but not at Malek).

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.

The film, a biopic about famed Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, has been in production for a long time with Singer posting many behind-the-scenes images and videos on his Instagram.

After Singer's departure from the film was announced on Monday, The Hollywood Reporter claimed the filmmaker was sacked over alleged issues with Rami Malek, who is portraying Mercury in the biopic.

Much like Solo - which was nearing the end of its shoot when Lord & Miller parted ways with Disney - Bohemian Rhapsody only had roughly two weeks before wrapping principal photography.

Cinematographer Thomas Newton Sigel stepped in and directed a few days' worth of shooting while Singer mysteriously vanished.

Production came to a halt when Singer did not return to set after a Thanksgiving break.

Although a new director has yet to be confirmed, the movie is still slated for release on Christmas 2018. It was at this time Fox made a decision to fire him under his pay-or-play contract. One source told THR Singer is claiming he's suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder because of tension on the set. It's interesting that FOX elected to keep Singer on the film, considering other studios have simply terminated actors and producers for alleged misconduct.

With only two weeks of filming left a new director is expected to be named soon.

"The full cast of the film was revealed shortly after, with 'X-Men Apocalypse" s Ben Hardy playing drummer Roger Taylor, 'The Tourist" s Gwilym Lee portraying Brian May and 'Jurassic Park" s Joe Mazzello taking the role of bass guitarist John Deacon.
