Queen Movie Director Bryan Singer Has Been Fired

No Caption Provided

This past weekend Twentieth Century Fox announced that production on the Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, had been halted due to "the unexpected unavailability of [director] Bryan Singer".

Much of the alleged drama came due to Singer's going missing from the set, with cinematographer Thomas Newton Sigel stepping in to helm shooting on several days. First Sacha Baron Cohen was set to play Queen's flamboyant late frontman, Freddie Mercury, but the relationship between him and the remaining members of the band fell apart when they wanted different things for the film.

Previously, Singer was also reported to have unexplained absences during the productions of "Superman Returns" and "X-Men: Apocalypse". He apparently n ever returned following a Thanksgiving break.

"Bryan Singer is no longer the director of Bohemian Rhapsody", reads a statement from the studio obtained by the publication.

However, the Silverdome apparently is indestructible, as the numerous explosions failed to bring down the building. The Silverdome property sits on 127 acres and was last used as home of the Detroit Lions in 2001.

This decision comes off the back of numerous reports of escalating tension between Singer and Rami Malek, who voiced his concerns to Fox about the filmmaker's "unreliability and unprofessionalism".

The growing tension led to a confrontation between Singer and Malek, which, while it did not become physical, did involve Singer throwing an object. Subsequently, however, the two are said to have settled their differences and filming was expected to resume.

Singer is known to disappear during filming.

The studio ended up terminating Singer's employment under his pay-or-play contract, which, as far as I understand it, means that Singer was paid in full even though he ended up getting fired. The film has about two weeks left in principal photography, and then the new director will oversee post production and possibly do some reshooting, so there is a lot of heavy lifting involved.
