Singer Gets “Bohemian” Directing Credit

Movie News

 

Filmmaker Bryan Singer is still set to get a directing credit on the Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” at 20th Century Fox reports THR.

Singer was fired in December after unexplained absences from set according to the studio, while Singer argued that the studio ‘refused to allow him time off to care for an ill parent’ and denied any wrongdoing.

Singer was replaced by Dexter Fletcher (“Eddie the Eagle”) to finish filming the movie. ‘Bohemian’ is described as a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music, and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek) but will barely touch upon both his struggle with AIDS and his open sexuality which were a key part of the man’s life.

“Bohemian Rhapsody” will open in theaters on November 2nd.
