Director of Queen Biopic Fired
Its been revealed that Bryan Singer has been fired from directing Bohemian Rhapsody.
Apparently, Singer was showing up to set late or not showing up at all. On top of that, actor Rami Malek, who’s known as a kind and professional person to work with, complained to Fox about Singer’s unprofessionalism. Things got so bad that apparently there was a non-physical altercation between the two that ended in Singer throwing an object.
As the Hollywood Reporter writes:
“Singer had been warned before production began by both Fox Film chairman and CEO Stacey Snider and Fox Film vice chairman and president of production Emma Watts that they wouldn’t tolerate any unprofessional behavior on his part. A representative from the Directors Guild of America also arrived on set to monitor the situation. According to another insider, Singer has claimed he is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder because of the tensions on the set.”
Rami Malek is one of the nicest guys in town. For him to complain to Fox says a lot about that set…. https://t.co/0Yd12MDMkY

That said, while Singer’s sordid past isn’t the official reason that he is leaving Bohemian Rhapsody, some fans think it at least influenced the decision. Meanwhile, others say the focus should now turn to Singer’s unhidden secret love for sex parties where young and aspiring male actors are preyed upon.
This could be another fall for a Hollywood executive who has used his power to abuse and sexually harass several people in the business.
