Final Friday, we reported that director Bryan Singer had halted manufacturing on his Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody over a “private well being matter,” although by Monday we found that Singer had really been fired by 20th Century Fox after he repeatedly failed to look on set and had supposedly clashed with star Rami Malek. Later, Singer launched a press release and defined that he was caring for a sick dad or mum and that the studio had refused to present him day without work that he had requested.
No matter was actually occurring, 20th Century Fox has now discovered a alternative for Singer in Dexter Fletcher, the director of Eddie The Eagle. That film was extra of a feel-good, family-friendly story than what you’d anticipate from a Freddie Mercury film, however manufacturing on Bohemian Rhapsody looks as if it was fairly far alongside already when Singer bought fired so there may solely be a lot any director may do. On the very least, Fletcher will almost definitely be certain that to indicate up when he’s speculated to, which might be an important factor to 20th Century Fox now.
