Queen biopic halts production over director Bryan Singer's absence
Dec 05, 2017, 01:13
The studio issued this vague statement: "Twentieth Century Fox Film has temporarily halted production on Bohemian Rhapsody due to the unexpected unavailability of Bryan Singer". According to THR, Malek complained about Singer to the studio, accusing him of not "not being present on set, unreliability and unprofessionalism".
This behavior comes at the same time that past allegations of the director's sexual misconduct have begun to surface, which have all been denied by Singer.
The choice to remove Singer from his directorial duties "reflected a growing clash" between the filmmaker and star Rami Malek, who plays Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. In one instance, a cinematographer had to fill in to direct during a "non-showing" of Singer.
The tension built up to an on-set confrontation between the actor and director, which reportedly involved Singer throwing an object.
However, Singer did not return to set after the Thanksgiving break.
Representatives for Singer and representatives for Malek have not yet responded to Vanity Fair's request for comment about the reported firing. He is believed to have been in the States for roughly the last ten days while the cast and crew have been in London. The film has about two weeks left in principal photography, and then the new director will oversee post production and possibly do some reshooting, so there is a lot of heavy lifting involved.
Bohemian Rhapsody is scheduled to be released in theaters on December 25, 2018.
