'Bohemian Rhapsody': Dexter Fletcher Replaces Bryan Singer as Director

Queen Biopic Finds New Director After Bryan Singer's Firing

Variety reports that Dexter Fletcher has been hired to finish the film after Bryan Singer was sacked as director earlier this week.

Director Dexter Fletcher has been hired to complete the upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody" following Bryan Singer's exit.

The studio statement on Fletcher's hiring doesn't indicate whether or not there'll be reshoots or if he'll be drastically changing the make-up of Singer's film, but it's likely that there'll be a number of scenes reshot as Fox claims that Singer was regularly absent from the set. That means Bohemian Rhapsody will hit theaters on December 25, 2018, as planned.

Nominated for a BAFTA Film award for his 2011 directorial debut "Wild Bill", Fletcher is an accomplished actor-turned-director who has starred in numerous film and theatre adaptations throughout his career.

Malek, who plays Mercury, also reportedly complained to the studio, 'charging Singer with not being present on set, unreliability and unprofessionalism, ' said The Hollywood Reporter. Sources have said that about two weeks of shooting remain.

As a result of Singer's absence from the shoot, Variety reported that cinematographer Thomas Newton Sigel briefly stepped in.

For his part, Singer accused Fox of refusing to give him time off to deal with health issues of one of his parents.

Fox had announced on December 1 that it had temporarily halted production on "Bohemian Rhapsody" and cited "the "unexpected unavailability of Bryan Singer".

X-Men director Singer was sacked by 20th Century Fox from the movie last week. He also acted in films such as Kick-Ass and Stardust.

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

"The full cast of the film was revealed shortly after, with 'X-Men Apocalypse" s Ben Hardy playing drummer Roger Taylor, 'The Tourist" s Gwilym Lee portraying Brian May and 'Jurassic Park" s Joe Mazzello taking the role of bass guitarist John Deacon.
