Moreover, Singer and lead actor Rami Malek reportedly had disagreements.

A new director has been announced to take over upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, just.

Bryan Singer has been fired from the movie Bohemian Rhapsody, 20th Century Fox has told THR.

The X-MEN helmer was terminated due to an extended absence from the London film set that caused a production shutdown.

The film was almost finished when Singer was sacked and Fletcher, who was originally tapped to direct the film in 2014 but left the project over creative differences, was rehired, according to The Wrap.

Representatives from Fox have now confirmed that Fletcher, who helmed films such as Eddie the Eagle and Wild Bill, will replace Singer. He also has an extensive acting career, including appearances in "Band of Brothers", "Stardust" and "Kick-Ass".

Bohemian Rhapsody was originally slated for a release on December 25, 2018. His no-shows resulted in cinematographer Thomas Newton Sigel having to step in to helm some of the days while Singer was absent.

Singer said in a statement: "I wanted nothing more than to be able to finish this project and help honor the legacy of Freddie Mercury and Queen but Fox would not permit me to do so because I needed to temporarily put my health, and the health of my loved ones, first".

As a child, he had roles in Bugsy Malone and Press Gang. He explained that the studio refused to give him some time off to deal with a very sick parent and with his own poor health.

Filming has been taking place in the United Kingdom, with Ben Hardy, Joe Mazzello and Gwilym Lee starring as Queen's other members.
