Director Bryan Singer kicked off Queen biopic

Last week, it was announced production on Bohemian Rhapsody had stalled due to "the unexpected unavailability" of Singer.

Tom Hollander, who plays Queen manager Jim Beach, also is said to have briefly quit the film because of Singer's behavior, but was persuaded to return, according to one source.

Singer also recently deleted his Twitter account, and The Hollywood Reporter reports that the director has been "routinely" late and even AWOL during the shoot and that Twentieth Century Fox has considered replacing him. THR remarks Singer's extended absence as the "final straw" for the studio, which led to his termination today.

"Bryan Singer is no longer the director of Bohemian Rhapsody", Twentieth Century Fox said in a statement to the Hollywood Reporter, who is now describing the set as having descended into "chaos".

Singer vanished from the set of the Freddie Mercury biopic, causing production to halt on December 1.

Fox is expected to name Singer's replacement within the next few days. The two were said to have settled their differences, but Singer's vanishing act for the past almost two weeks was the final straw for Fox film chair and CEO Stacey Snider, who fired Singer on Monday. All parties allegedly settled their differences prior to Thanksgiving, but when Bryan Singer didn't return to set after the holiday, Fox was left with no choice.

Singer is known best for directing movies like "The Usual Suspects" and numerous "X-Men" movies. Representatives for Singer and representatives for Malek have not yet responded to Vanity Fair's request for comment about the reported firing.

Fueling tension was an incident on Friday, due to Singer not showing up to the film London's set.
