Bryan Singer Fired from Queen Biopic Due to On-Set Drama

With just two weeks of shooting left for Fox's Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody starring Rami Malek, the director Bryan Singer has been fired from his position reports Variety. This was a very taxing experience, which ultimately took a serious toll on my own health.

Bryan Singer has been fired from the Queen biopic, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Producers at the time only said that filming was stopped because of Singer's "unexpected unavailability".

Singer then addressed reports that his termination was catalyzed by a non-physical confrontation with Malek that allegedly ended in Singer throwing an object. The two were said to have settled their differences, but Singer's vanishing act for the past almost two weeks was the final straw for Fox film chair and CEO Stacey Snider, who fired Singer on Monday. Singer had been warned by the studio before production began that they wouldn't tolerate any unprofessional behavior on his part - Singer's reputation precedes him, and he'd apparently gone MIA on two other sets prior to this one.

Despite being over a year away, one of next year's most anticipated movies was quickly pegged to be already Bryan Singer's Bohemian Rhapsody.

While no further statements have been made, 20th Century Fox is expected to announce a new director for the film in a matter of days.

The Queen film, entitled Bohemian Rhapsody, stars actor Rami Malek as legendary Queen frontman Freddie Mercury.

Singer also addressed the rumors that his firing was sparked by the negative tensions between himself and Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek.

Production had been halted on the film after Singer did not return following a Thanksgiving holiday break.

The studio terminated Singer under the "pay or play" provision of his contract, sources indicated, due to his repeated failures to show up on the set. His no-shows resulted in cinematographer Thomas Newton Sigel having to step in to helm some of the days while Singer was absent. Tom Hollander had also briefly quit the film, however he was later convinced to return.

Singer, 52, is best known for directing the X-Men films and The Usual Suspects. "Bohemian Rhapsody" is now slated for a release date of December 25, 2018.
