Bryan Singer movies ranked from best to worst
Bryan Singer is in hot waters right now. He was recently fired from directing his latest project, the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, almost 3 weeks before the end of production.
There is no word about his replacement, but according to multiple sources his firing was due to his constant absences from the set, fights and disagreements with the crew, walkouts from some of the actors and having the cinematographer Thomas Newton Sigel as a impromptu replacement in the director’s chair.
‘Bohemian Rhapsody is a passion project of mine. ‘With fewer than three weeks to shoot remaining, I asked Fox for some time off so I could return to the U.S. to deal with pressing health matters concerning one of my parents.
‘This was a very taxing experience, which ultimately took a serious toll on my own health.
‘Unfortunately, the studio was unwilling to accommodate me and terminated my services. This was not my decision and it was beyond my control.’
-Bryan Singer’s statement
Other sources say that Singer was fired over fears about the upcoming sexual harassment allegations against the director, but that is a speculation at this point.
