Queen biopic, "Bohemian Rhapsody", gets new director

Dexter Fletcher

Shooting is due to resume next week.

Singer, who is 52, has directed films including "The Usual Suspects", four X-Men movies including last year's "X-Men: Apocalypse", "Jack the Giant Slayer", and "Superman Returns".

After his firing, Singer said he was let go after the studio declined to give him time off to deal with an ailing parent.

A few days ago, Bryan Singer was sacked from his position as director of the Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

Filming has been taking place in London with "Mr. Robot" star Rami Malek in the lead role as Freddie Mercury, the frontman for Queen. And while the finger-pointing between filmmaker and studio continues, 20th Century Fox has already lined up their replacement: Dexter Fletcher, the English actor and director whose most recent credit behind the camera is the 2016 Olympics drama Eddie the Eagle.

"'Bohemian Rhapsody' is a passion project of mine". Only two weeks of production remained when Singer was sacked when he failed to return to the London set of the film, which stars Mr. Robot's Rami Malek as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. This was a very taxing experience, which ultimately took a serious toll on my own health. "This was not my decision and it was beyond my control".

Neither Malek nor Singer have publicly commented on the film since Singer's departure and statement.

He added: 'Rami and I successfully put those differences behind us and continued to work on the film together until just prior to Thanksgiving'.

As well as Malek portraying enigmatic footman Freddie Mercury, Ben Hardy will portray drummer Roger Taylor, Joe Mazzello is in line to star as bassist John Deacon and Gwilym Lee will play lead guitarist Brian May.
