Bryan Singer has been fired from his directing job on the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. The 52-year-old X-Menfranchise director reportedly clashed with lead actor Rami Malek on set throughout filming and then never returned to set after Thanksgiving break, which led to production being shut down. The studio behind the movie, Fox, said at the time that production was suspended due to Singer‘s “unexpected unavailability.” Malek, who portrays Freddie Mercury, allegedly complained to the studio about Singer‘s “unreliability and unprofessionalism.” A new director is expected to be named this week. In a statement last night, Singer called the movie a "passion project" and slammed Fox for not allowing him to take time off to care for a sick parent. He also said rumors of a spat with Malek were overblown.
