Freddie Mercury biopic hires new director after Singer's firing

Singer was sacked from the project December 4 after what the studio said were unexplained absences from the set, although the director countered that the studio refused to give him time off to care for an ill parent.

Malek complained to the studio, charging Singer with not being present on set, unreliability and unprofessionalism. As for the director's credit, that will be a decision for the guild.

The growing tension led to a confrontation between Singer and Malek, which, while it did not become physical, did involve Singer throwing an object. While the star and director are said to have resolved their differences, the production, which has been shooting in London, was forced to shut down December 1 because of the director's absences. Rumor has it that there are only two weeks of shooting left before production is complete and the movie can go in post-production.

A handful of well-rated movies and history with 20th Century Fox preceded Dexter Fletcher's appointment as director on Queen's rock band biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

Singer, however, accused Fox of not letting him have time off the project to deal with health issues for one of his parents. Unfortunately, the studio was unwilling to accommodate me and terminated my services.

"I wanted nothing more than to be able to finish this project and help honour the legacy of Freddie Mercury and Queen", he said in a statement. He revealed that they did have "creative differences", but they had reportedly settled them prior to the Thanksgiving break.

Malek (Mr. Robot) is starring as Mercury in the film, who's said to be doing some of his own singing along with using Mercury's real voice.
