Starring Emmy-winning Rami Malek of Mr. Robot as Queen's charismatic lead singer Freddie Mercury, Bohemian Rhapsody charts the band's rise to fame through the 1970s and 1980s.

Trouble began when Singer went missing during production on several occasions.

Malek complained to the studio about Singer's unprofessionalism, which included a spat between the two in which the director threw an object.

Days after announcing that X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer had been fired from the upcoming Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, 20th Century Fox has announced who will take the reins and complete production on the film.

As a result of Singer's absence from the shoot, Variety reported that cinematographer Thomas Newton Sigel briefly stepped in. After being relieved up his duties for unprofessional behavior, Singer now claims that Fox movie studios wouldn't allow him time off from the film to care for a sick parent. A representative from the Directors Guild of America also arrived on set to monitor the situation.

It is believed that there are about two weeks' worth of shooting left, unless he decides to reshoot scenes, and it remains unknown what the director credit on the final film will be. 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.

Neither Malek nor Singer have publicly commented on the film since Singer's departure and statement.

"I wanted nothing more than to be able to finish this project and help honour the legacy of Freddie Mercury and Queen", he said in a statement.
