It’s a Blue Christmas for Queen Fans. Fox has fired director Brian Singer from the forthcoming Queen biopicture starring Rami Malek.
Singer reportedly was repeatedly absent from production, and the studio let him go.
A source close to the production told Variety that the director’s behavior was an issue with star Tom Hollander, who portrays Jim Beach.
Production on the film was halted on Dec. 1, with a statement from the director citing “personal health issues.”
With two weeks left of shooting for the movie, the studio may turn to cinematographer Thomas Newton Sigel to complete the film, which is currently scheduled for release on Dec. 25, 2018.
