Queen Biopic 'Bohemian Rhapsody' Taps Dexter Fletcher As New Director

Dexter Fletcher

It is being reported that 20th Century Fox has announced the film's new director, Dexter Fletcher.

With Bryan Singer gone, Fletcher has now stepped in.

After a start in showbiz with many credits as an actor, Fletcher moved behind the camera for his 2011 directing debut Wild Bill.

Singer was sacked from the project Monday by 20th Century Fox after failing to return to the project after Thanksgiving break. Singer was sacked from the project December 4 after what the studio said were unexplained absences from the set, although the director countered that the studio refused to give him time off to care for an ill parent.

Bohemian Rhapsody also stars Ben Hardy, Gwilym Lee, Joseph Mazzello, Allen Leech, and Lucy Boynton. 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. This was a very taxing experience, which ultimately took a serious toll on my own health. Fletcher also will oversee post-production for the film, which is supposed to release in December 2018.

Rami Malek stars as rock icon Freddie Mercury in the upcoming film "Bohemian Rhapsody".

"Unfortunately, the studio was unwilling to accommodate me and terminated my services", Singer wrote.

Singer also said there had been no confrontation between him and Malek, and that apart from creative differences, the two had put their differences aside and were working together harmoniously before the Thanksgiving holiday.

Singer, on the other hand, denies any allegations of unprofessional behavior during the film's production.

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