Fox has replaced Bryan Singer on Bohemian Rhapsody with Dexter Fletcher, the director of the films Eddie the Eagle and Wild Bill. However, Fox decided to make a move after a reported escalating clash between Singer and lead actor Rami Malek, who is portraying Freddie Mercury in the film, over the director's absence from the set.

Following Singer's frequent absences and reported unprofessional behavior, 20th Century Fox has confirmed the project will resume shooting next week. Bohemian Rhapsody is still scheduled to premiere on Christmas Day 2018.

Malek, who plays Mercury, also reportedly complained to the studio, 'charging Singer with not being present on set, unreliability and unprofessionalism, ' said The Hollywood Reporter.
