The actor previously opened up about what it has been like playing such an iconic figure in Bohemian Rhapsody."Everyday [I've immersed myself in the world of Freddie Mercury] and it never feels like it's enough because those guys, each one of them, is this incredible artist on their own", Malek said.

The production of the upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic has been halted due to the "unexpected unavailability" of director Bryan Singer.

The situation gets hard when the movie is in production and the director of the film has proven irregular.

Chloe's Original Voice is Returning to Life is Strange: Before the Storm
Max has been absent for most of Before the Storm , putting the focus squarely on Chloe, who has been voiced by Rhianna DeVries. Farewell will see you in a younger Max Caulfield's shoes, and is likely your last chance of seeing the duo together.

However, it is not the first time the project has experienced teething problems.

Gwilym Lee ("The Hollow Crown") will portray lead guitarist Brian May and Joe Mazzello ("The Social Network") will tackle the role of bass guitarist John Deacon.

While a rep told BBC Singer is dealing with "a personal health matter" concerning him and his family, sources to The Hollywood Reporter paint a different picture. Singer posted photos of Malek from the set in October. Singer has reportedly been off the set for more than a week, having never returned from his Thanksgiving holiday. As per the report, the directed is missing from the London shoot for the past three days. Singer and the other accused have long denied any wrongdoing; Singer's attorney referred to the claims as "completely without merit". As THR notes in their report about the delay, Singer has disappeared from productions before, those of X-Men: Apocalypse and Superman Returns - both films the director completed. The report added how the producers and the film's star had grown exhausted of Singer's behaviour, who was in the habit of showing up late for work.
