Freddie Mercury "Bohemian Rhapsody" Biopic Director Fired was a Top 10 story on Tuesday: (Radio.com) Director Bryan Singer has responded to being fired from the forthcoming biopic about the late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, "Bohemian Rhapsody".

"Production on the Freddie Mercury biopic will resume next week in the U.K. Fletcher's credits include "Eddie the Eagle" and 'Wild Bill". "Bryan hopes to get back to work on the film soon after the holidays", Fox said in a statement prior to the director's firing. The director left the project in March 2014 over creative differences, and eventually Singer came on board with star Rami Malek.

The X-MEN helmer was terminated due to an extended absence from the London film set that caused a production shutdown. Fletcher has appeared in such films as Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998), Kick-Ass (2010) and Stardust (2007).

Sacha Baron Cohen had been set to write, direct and star as Mercury since the film was announced in September 2010 but in the summer of 2013 he pulled out of the project, reportedly because he and Queen, who have script and director approval, were unable to agree on the type of movie they wanted to make. With fewer than three weeks to shoot remaining, I asked Fox for some time off so I could return to the USA to deal with pressing health matters concerning one of my parents.

Bohemian Rhapsody is still expected to hit theaters on December 25, 2018.

Singer denied the reports and said through a lawyer that he had asked for time off to take care of his sick mother, an ongoing situation that also had affected his own health.

Filming has been taking place in the United Kingdom, with Ben Hardy, Joe Mazzello and Gwilym Lee starring as Queen's other members.
