The Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody has been going through a rocky last couple of weeks. Director Bryan Singer has been absent from the set, which is behavior typical of him and led the production to a complete halt. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox had enough of this nonsense and terminated Singer’s contract.
Also reported is an altercation between Singer and star Rami Malek (Mr. Robot) who looks amazing as Freddie Mercury (pictured above). Although the altercation wasn’t physical, stuff did get thrown but the actor and the director reportedly made nice afterwards.
Singer has a long history on bailing on productions and one can’t help but wonder if this is the straw the finally breaks the camel’s back. A new director is expected to be announced soon with two more weeks of principal photography remaining.
