After being relieved up his duties for unprofessional behavior, Singer now claims that Fox movie studios wouldn't allow him time off from the film to care for a sick parent.
Said Singer in the statement: "Bohemian Rhapsody is a passion project of mine".
The Deadline report claims Singer was sacked due to a pattern of unreliability, including him disappearing for three days after the Thanksgiving break and clashing with Malek.
As LRM (and everyone else on the internet) reported yesterday, Singer was sacked from the project due to his erratic and unprofessional behavior. "This was not my decision and it was beyond my control", he had said.
While this is clearly a large bump in the road for the studio, they plan to have Bohemian Rhapsody in cinemas for December 2018. The 3-year first look deal that Singer's production company Bad Hat Harry had with Fox has also not been renewed, and the company's offices on the Fox lot are reportedly being packed up. Furthermore, the director was alleged to have gone missing during the production, leading to cinematographer Thomas Newton Sigel coming in to direct scenes.
Like The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan, Bryan Singer was art-house post-child before being plucked from relative security to helm an A-list superhero blockbuster in the early 2000s. As THR reports, Singer was a no-show during several days of filming.
There is no denying that the most critical centerpiece in any biopic related to Queen is the late Freddie Mercury.
Fletcher replaces Bryan Singer, who was sacked earlier in the week, Twentieth Century Fox Film told the Daily News.
A rep for Singer explained that the director's absence was due to "a personal health matter concerning Bryan and his family", but rumors surrounding the project seemed to suggest otherwise. That remains unconfirmed for now, but it's clear that there's some trouble brewing behind the scenes and we can only hope that it all gets resolved sooner rather than later. The actor made an official complaint to the studio, commenting on Singer's "not being present on set, unreliability and unprofessionalism". He abandoned the X-Men series to direct Superman Returns, a fun by insubstantial outing for the man of steel that failed to meet either fan or studio demands for the character.

But with the Apple and Amazon streaming rivalry coming to end, Apple TV hardware could eventually be available to buy on Amazon. The beef between these two companies now runs much deeper than streaming video, which makes swift resolution hard to envision.
