Bryan Singer will receive directing credit on Bohemian Rhapsody despite his dismissal

Back in December 20th Century Fox announced that it had fired Bryan Singer from Bohemian Rhapsody with just two weeks of filming remaining on the biopic of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, with Dexter Fletcher (Eddie the Eagle) subsequently taking over to complete the picture.

Singer was removed from the film amid rumours that he’d been incredibly difficult to work with during the production, and also went missing from the set after a Thanksgiving holiday (allegations he denied in a statement following his dismissal).

Well, it seems that unlike Solo: A Star Wars Story, which saw Ron Howard replacing Phil Lord and Chris Miller, Singer will remain credited as director of the film, with producer Graham King telling Empire:

“Bryan Singer is the credited director of the film. Basically, Bryan had some personal issues going on. He wanted to hiatus the movie to deal with them, and the movie had to get finished.

Bryan Singer Will Get Directing Credit on ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

Bryan Singer Will Get Directing Credit on ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’
Bryan Singer has received the directing credit for Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody,” despite being replaced by Dexter Fletcher during the latter stages of the shoot.

Fletcher came on board to direct in December after Fox fired Singer from the project after repeated absences from the set had forced the studio to halt production.

Fox is opening the movie on Nov. 2. The studio confirmed a report about the directing credit Tuesday in Empire Magazine.

“Bryan Singer is the credited director of the film,” producer Graham King said. “Basically, Bryan had some personal issues going on. He wanted to hiatus the movie to deal with them, and the movie had to get finished. That was what it came down to… It wasn’t about reinventing the wheel. We needed someone who would have some creative freedom, but work inside a box.”

King also said in the interview that Fletcher shot footage for about 16 days.

The upcoming film Bohemian Rhapsody explores the life, music, and loves of legendary Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. Starring Rami Malek as Mercury (and with an obviously killer soundtrack), Bohemian Rhapsody is expected to be the cinematic celebration Queen fans have been waiting for. But it wouldn't be a Mercury biopic without exploring the singer's greatest love: Mary Austin.

Austin, who is portrayed by Lucy Boynton, was Mercury's longterm friend and ex-girlfriend. According to Queen keyboardist and cofounder Brian May in the 2000 documentary Freddie Mercury, The Untold Story, May and Mercury would often frequent London fashion house Biba in order to have a peek at the retailer's gorgeous female employees. One of these shop girls was Mary Austin, who May took out on a few dates before introducing her to Mercury. In the documentary, Austin recounts Mercury routinely visiting the shop in order to see her.

Bryan Fuller criticises Bohemian Rhapsody trailer for hetwashing

Earlier this week we saw the first teaser trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody, the long-gestating biopic of legendary British rock band Queen and front-man Freddie Mercury.

The teaser appeared to generate a lot of excitement, but one person who wasn’t particularly impressed was Hannibal and American Gods creator Bryan Fuller, who took to social media to criticise the trailer for ‘hetwashing’ with regards to Mercury’s sexuality.

“Anyone else mildly annoyed that the Bohemian Rhapsody trailer features gay/bi superstar Freddie Mercury flirting with and twirling with a woman but no indication of his love of men?” wrote Fuller.

He also took exception to the official synopsis, which describes Mercury as having a “life-threatening illness”, rather than specifying that his condition was AIDS:

“Dear 20th Century Fox: Yes, it was a life-threatening illness, but more specifically it was AIDS. From having gay sex with men. Do better.”

Bryan Fuller Blasts ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Trailer for Ignoring Freddie Mercury’s Sexuality, AIDS

Bryan Fuller Blasts ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Trailer for Ignoring Freddie Mercury’s Sexuality, AIDS
Writer and producer Bryan Fuller is accusing 20th Century Fox of “hetero-washing” the story of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in a new trailer and marketing materials for the biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

“Anyone else mildly annoyed … that the #BohemianRhapsody trailer features gay/bi superstar Freddie Mercury flirting with and twirling with a woman but no indication of his love of men?” Fuller tweeted on Tuesday after the clip hit the web.

The footage shows actress Lucy Boynton staring longingly at star Rami Malek as Mercury, also leaping into his arms. Boynton plays Mary Austin, who some credit as Mercury’s muse but is not well known in pop culture. The trailer also features a young man coming on to Malek’s Mercury in a recording studio, but it’s blink-and-miss.
