Published Dec 07, 2017The upcoming Queen biopic about frontman Freddie Mercury has been plagued by endless drama since its inception many moons ago. Following the departure of original star Sacha Baron Cohen back in 2013, director Bryan Singer was fired from the film earlier this week. Now, his replacement has been announced.
Dexter Fletcher will inherit the messy ongoing Bohemian Rhapsody project. His previous directing credits include Wild Bill, Sunshine on Leith and Eddie the Eagle, and he's also acted in a number of films and television shows.
Filming for Bohemian Rhapsody is expected to resume next week.
As previously reported, Singer was fired from the project after failing to show up on the set after Thanksgiving.
Prior to his dismissal, the studio reportedly received multiple complaints about Singer's unprofessional behaviour, with Jim Beach briefly quitting the film and star Rami Malek getting into a heated altercation with the now-axed director.
