Bryan Singer Gets A Directing Credit On Bohemian Rhapsody

Posted by at 11:18 am on June 13, 2018

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Bryan Singer (LegionX-Men: Apocalypse) will still get a directing credit on 20th Century Fox’s Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, even though the director was fired in December from the project.

The studio claimed Singer was fired after unexplained absences from set, and Singer argued that the studio “refused to allow him time off to care for an ill parent,” and denied any wrongdoing. Singer was replaced by Dexter Fletcher (Eddie the Eagle) to finish filming the movie.

“I wanted nothing more than to be able to finish this project and help honor the legacy of Freddie Mercury and Queen, but Fox would not permit me to do so because I needed to temporarily put my health, and the health of my loved ones, first,” Singer commented after his initial departure.

The film is directed by Dexter Fletcher (Eddie the Eagle) and was written by Academy Award-nominated scribe Anthony McCarten (The Theory of Everything). In addition to Malek, the Queen band members will be played by Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, and Joseph Mazzello. Also starring are Lucy Boynton, Aiden Gillen, Tom Hollander, and Mike Myers.

Bohemian Rhapsody will open in theaters on November 2, 2018.
