Deadline is reporting that Fox has hired Fletcher, best known for Eddie the Eagle and Proclaimers musical Sunshine on Leith, to shepherd the final two weeks of production on the film, as well as potential reshoots.
The director was originally attached to the project back in 2013, when Ben Whishaw was set to portray Mercury.
It is not known whether Fletcher will get a directing credit on the finished film, with the final decision down to the DGA, though the release date of December 2018 remains in place.
