Bryan Singer Won't Direct Freddie Mercury Biopic After All

Bryan Singer has reportedly been fired from directing the new Freddie Mercury biopic. Production was initially halted after Singer failed to return to set after Thanksgiving. The Hollywood Reporter writes that Rami Malek also reportedly complained to the studio about the director’s unprofessionalism and that star Tom Hollander briefly quit the film as well due to Singer’s behavior.

Sounds to me like the studio is safeguarding the project as the Reckoning continues. Bryan Singer must be seriously connected to not have been named thus far (as well as quashing it the last time it was).
