The Hollywood Reporter has the news that Twentieth Century Fox has fired Bryan Singer from Bohemian Rhapsody, the Freddie Mercury biopic he was directing.

To the surprise of no one, Fox fired Bryan Singer from the helm of Bohemian Rhapsody, after he went AWOL for three days last week when production was to resume after Thanksgiving.

Cinematographer Thomas Newton Sigel has been stepping in during Singer's absences.

Singer is also said to have thrown an object at star Rami Maleek at one point, who has earned a reputation as one of the most polite and affable actors in the industry.

The Mr. Robot star, 36, reportedly complained to Twentieth Century Fox about Singer's "unreliability and unprofessionalism". For example, insiders tell THR that producers and his star had grown exhausted of Singer's behavior, which saw him routinely show up late to set.

What's telling is that Singer was warned before production even began by Fox Film chairman and CEO Stacey Snider and Fox Film vice chairman and president of production Emma Watts that he was working under a microscope. A representative from the Directors Guild of America also arrived on set to monitor the situation.

A man who claims he was sexually abused by the "X-Men" franchise director Singer said Thursday, April 17, 2014, that he reported the molestation to authorities at the time, and does not know why charges were never pursued. A new director is expected to take over the production, which is said to have about two weeks of principal photography left.

A source told The News that Singer was sacked for "a pattern of unreliable behavior on set" and that the studio wanted another director to finish the movie. His prolonged absence was the final straw, and so the studio made a decision to terminate his contract.

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