Bryan Singer fired from Freddie Mercury biopic

Tom Hollander, who portrays Queen manager Jim Beach, is also said to have quit the film over Singer's behaviour before being convinced to return.

Bryan Singer had reportedly been warned before the production even began that the studio would not tolerate any unprofessionalism of any kind by Fox Film chairman and CEO Stacey Snider and Fox vice chairman and president of production, Emma Watts. The Borat actor clashed with the members of Queen over the film's focus and portrayal of Mercury's life and death.

"Twentieth Century Fox Film has temporarily halted production on Bohemian Rhapsody due to the unexpected unavailability of Bryan Singer", the studio told EW in a previous statement.

Bohemian Rhapsody will chart the rise of the British rock band Queen through to their iconic Live Aid performance in 1985.

THR reported that Singer was absent during production on several occasions.

This is alleged to have led to a confrontation between Singer and Malek that resulted with the director throwing an object (but not at Malek). You can't just disappear when the tough gets going, and from the outside, it appears that's exactly what Singer did here - to a studio that stuck by the X-Men filmmaker through some hard times and troubling speculation, no less.

The Huthis have also accused the former president of accepting funds from the Saudi-backed Hadi government. Pointing to worldwide law, Lowcock said, "Wars have rules, and they need to be complied with".

Fox promises a new director will be named soon. A new director is expected to take over the production, which is said to have about two weeks of principal photography left. 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.

A rep for Singer did not immediately return a request for comment. The two have apparently patched things up now, but one insider told the Reporter that Singer is dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder because of the set's tense atmosphere.

Bohemian Rhapsody is set to hit theaters on December 25, 2018.
