On Sunday, production on the film was suspended after the director failed to show up to set. The director was reportedly warned by the studio prior to production beginning about his professionalism, but tensions eventually boiled over into a almost physical altercation between the director and the film's star that resulted in Singer allegedly throwing something.

The movie tracks the iconic rise of Freddie Mercury, one of the most beloved vocalists in recording history, as Queen rises to the zenith of the televised Live Aid event of 1985, which was the most watched concert in history. Cinematographer Thomas Newton Sigel would apparently fill in for him, handling production in Singer's absence.

The Hollywood Reporter revealed Friday that the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody had halted production because of the "unexpected unavailability" of director Bryan Singer. In addition, Rami Malek, who is playing Queen front man Freddie Mercury, filed a complaint that declared that Brian Singer was unprofessional, unreliable, and absent from the set too much. Obviously, there are millions of dollars on the line here, and that's a lot of pressure for any director, even one as experienced as Singer.

As for the aforementioned clash between Singer and Malek, the tension came to a confrontation that didn't escalate to becoming physical, but did result in Singer throwing an unidentified object.


Singer is known best for directing movies like "The Usual Suspects" and numerous "X-Men" movies.

Principal photography on the movie began this past September, and is expected to take about two more weeks to complete. A new director will be named within the next few days, according to THR.

According to insiders, Singer is claiming he is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder because of the tensions from the on-set drama.

Bohemian Rhapsody is set to hit theaters on December 25, 2018.
