Sounds like someone wants to break free: Fox has suspended filming on its upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic because, last we checked, the show can't go on without its director.

According to the publication, both Singer and a family member are suffering from a health problem.

According to the studio, "health matter" is the reason behind this which involves the director of the film Bryan Singer. There's no information about the nature of his illness.

"Twentieth Century Fox Film has temporarily halted production on Bohemian Rhapsody due to the unexpected unavailability of Bryan Singer", a Twentieth Century Fox Film spokesperson told TheWrap in a statement.

Prior to his involvement in USA's excellent Mr. Robot (our review), Rami Malek was often restricted to tertiary roles. He momentarily vanished during the shooting of X-Men: Apocalypse and during Superman Returns as well.

Pelicans' Anthony Davis (pelvis) ruled out on Saturday
Pelicans management have not issued a statement on the fine. Expect an update when the results of Davis' MRI come in. There were no further details on Davis' injury.


The film is still set to his theaters on December 25, 2018.

Industry sources are claiming that even before Bohemian Rhapsody's production hit a stumbling block, Fox had started discreet discussions with other directors who can replace Singer and complete the film.

Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor are listed as co-producers along with Singer.

A source has told "The Hollywood Reporter" that Singer, 52, didn't return to filming, which is taking place in the United Kingdom, after the Thanksgiving break and producers were reportedly talking about "potentially replacing him" with a new director. While an official look at Malek as Freddie Mercury was released, unofficial photos and videos from the set of Bohemian Rhapsody have offered fans additional looks at the actor in character as the Queen frontman.
