Queen Biopic 'Bohemian Rhapsody' Finds New Director After Firing Bryan Singer

After Bryan Singer was fired from Bohemian Rhapsody, the upcoming Queen biopic, a new director was put in his place.

Eddie the Eagle director Dexter Fletcher will now take the helm after Bryan was fired due to unexplained absences on the set. Bryan insists he was tending to the needs of an ill parent, which the studio would not accomodate.

Production on the movie is expected to resume next week, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film’s leading star Rami Malek and Bryan reportedly clashed on set, but are said to have resolved their differences.

    Doesn’t matter if filming gets finished with a new director – DGA rules stipulate, without exception, that the director that directs the majority of a film gets the director credit. Unless two directors work as one entity (i.e. Cohen Brothers, etc.), there can only be ONE director name attached to a project. No matter what happens, Bohemian Rhapsody will have Bryan Singer’s name on it, and every penny it makes – part of it will go to Bryan Singer – even if he was fired. Only if they reshot the ENTIRE film would his name be replaced with the new director, and even then Singer would still be listed as a producer.

    I don’t know how this project will NOT be shelved if the rumblings about what soon awaits Singer are true. If anybody thinks the film is tainted now, just wait until the bombshell expose surfaces.
