Bryan Singer Fired From Directing Queen Biopic After On-Set Chaos

"Bryan Singer is no longer the director of 'Bohemian Rhapsody, ' " a Twentieth Century Fox Film spokesperson told the Daily News. A studio insider then told the Tracking Board that Singer's firing under the pay-or-play provision of his contract "was in the best interest of the film" due to the director's "pattern of unexpected unavailability" throughout the production.

Malek complained to the studio, charging Singer with not being present on set, unreliability and unprofessionalism.

Tom Hollander also reportedly quit his role as band manager Jim Beach before being convinced to return to the movie.

Mill was first arrested in 2007 on charges that included carrying a firearm without a license and drug possession. His defense team alleged Brinkley made the case personal and assumed an "essentially prosecutorial" role.

Making matters worse, tensions between Malek and Singer got to the point where the two had a heated altercation on set.

The movie was in chaos, according to The Hollywood Reporter, due to Singer's clashes with the movie's star, Rami Malek, and his absences from set.

Fox Film vice chairman and president of production Emma Watts and Fox Film chairman and CEO Stacey Snider are said to have warned Singer that they "wouldn't tolerate any unprofessional behavior on his part". His prolonged absence was the final straw, and so the studio chose to terminate his contract. Singer failed to arrive on set after the Thanksgiving break.

Mega Man 11 , due out in late 2018, features modern graphics and appears to retain familiar elements and enemies. Legacy Collection first came out on other platforms, with the first coming out on 3DS in early 2016.

Despite all of these problems, Singer had still been given another opportunity to return to set and finish the film, which has two weeks of principal photography left.

No word yet on whether the chaos behind the scenes will have any affect on the release of Bohemian Rhapsody, which is now set to premiere on December 25, 2018.
