Director Bryan Singer has been fired from upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. The news comes after The Hollywood Reporter said that Singer and lead actor Rami Malek had clashed and that the director had failed to show up on set on several occasions. Twentieth Century Fox have confirmed Singer’s departure, with a source saying it was down to Singer’s “pattern of unreliable behavior on the set.” However, Singer disputes this, reporting that he was fired while he was ill. Despite Singer’s dismissal, Bohemian Rhapsody is still expected to be released in December next year.
