Bryan Singer Fired From Directing Queen Biopic After On-Set Chaos

Bryan Singer has just been fired as the director of the upcoming Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.

Sources tell the Hollywood Reporter that Singer, who according to reports has frequently been late to set, has made filming hard. Cinematographer Thomas Newton Sigel had to step in when Singer was a no-show. This followed a series of rumors of erratic behavior by Singer on the film.

The news falls in line with reports from Variety last week that stated producers at 20th Century Fox, New Regency and Graham King said filming was suspended because of Singer's "unexpected unavailability".

Witnesses said he left the airport in a Mercedes but it was unclear where he was headed or who was driving the vehicle. A rights lawyer, Khaled Ali, has also announced he will run in 2018 but has alleged harassment by the authorities.

The Mr. Robot star, 36, reportedly complained to Twentieth Century Fox about Singer's "unreliability and unprofessionalism".

Neither Singer or Malek have commented publicly on the move at this time. A source from the production has revealed that Singer has never returned to the set since Thanksgiving Day.

Sources tell the publication that Singer's unprofessional behaviour on and off set resulted in multiple complaints to the studio. A Directors Guild of America representative was apparently on set as well, appointed to "monitor the situation" and ensure that Singer would not act out. Subsequently, however, the two are said to have settled their differences and filming was expected to resume. The movie has two more weeks of principal photography remaining.
