Dexter Fletcher Brought In to Replace Director Bryan Singer

Dexter Fletcher

However, reports are saying that apart from his conflict with Malek, he also repeatedly failed to show up on set, which proved to be a huge obstacle for the production.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox has confirmed United Kingdom filmmaker Dexter Fletcher will take over with filming to resume next week.

Nominated for a BAFTA Film award for his 2011 directorial debut "Wild Bill", Fletcher is an accomplished actor-turned-director who has starred in numerous film and theatre adaptations throughout his career. That news was followed up by a response from Singer's camp, claiming that the studio did not make allowances for the director to care for an ailing parent.

According to Deadline, Singer did not return from Thanksgiving break and was not reachable for three days.

Starring Emmy-winning Rami Malek of Mr. Robot as Queen's charismatic lead singer Freddie Mercury, Bohemian Rhapsody charts the band's rise to fame through the 1970s and 1980s.

In a statement issued through his lawyer, Singer said he had asked for time off to deal with a "pressing" family matter.

The film has been shooting in London; on December 1 studio Twentieth Century Fox confirmed that due to the "unexpected unavailability" of Singer, the production had been put on hold. "This was not my decision and it was beyond my control". It remains to be seen, though, whether Fletcher will call for reshoots.

This week, X-Men director Brian Singer was dismissed from the Freddie Mercury biopic on which he'd been working. Penned by Justin Haythe, the film is scheduled to release on December 25 next year.
