Bryan Singer Speaks Out Being Fired From Queens Biopic

Published

on

Fox announced that Bryan Singer was terminated from the Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody.  The director was accused of getting into heated confrontations with star Rami Malek and acting unprofessionally in taking prolonged absences from the set. When production has halted Dec. 1, the studio cited the “unexpected unavailability” of the filmmaker. Singer spoke out about these claims.

“Bohemian Rhapsody is a passion project of mine. With fewer than three weeks to shoot remaining, I asked Fox for some time off so I could return to the U.S. to deal with pressing health matters concerning one of my parents. This was a very taxing experience, which ultimately took a serious toll on my own health. Unfortunately, the studio was unwilling to accommodate me and terminated my services. This was not my decision and it was beyond my control…

“Rumors that my unexpected departure from the film was sparked by a dispute I had with Rami Malek are not true. While, at times, we did have creative differences on set, Rami and I successfully put those differences behind us and continued to work on the film together until just prior to Thanksgiving.”

Rami Malek stars as Freddy Mercury and his Queen bandmates (played by Gwilym Lee (Guitarist, Brian May), Ben Hardy (Drummer, Roger Taylor) and Joseph Mazzello (bassist, John Deacon) recreate the group’s now-legendary 1985 Live Aid set at London’s Wembley Stadium, a moment guitarist Brian May once called, “the greatest day of our lives.

There is no word yet on who will step in to fill in for Singer.

It’s a much more a traditional action-adventure quest movie…Aquaman has been the joke of the comic book world, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought how cool that would be. Let’s take the character everybody makes fun of and do something really interesting with him.”
