Dexter Fletcher to direct Freddie Mercury biopic

07 Décembre 2017

Dexter Fletcher has replaced Bryan Singer as the director of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury's biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody".

Fletcher has previously directed Eddie the Eagle for Fox and Wild Bill.

51-year-old Dexter will be directing the forthcoming Freddie Mercury biopic starring Rami Malek, after Bryan Singer was sacked for neglecting the project while he tried to care for a sick parent.

British rock group Queen at Les Ambassadeurs, where they were presented with silver, gold and platinum discs for sales in excess of one million of their hit single "Bohemian Rhapsody", which was No 1 for 9 weeks.

Singer was originally hired to direct the film, but after several months of filming, he was let go by producers on Monday (11Dec17) after he reportedly failed to return to the set in the United Kingdom after America's Thanksgiving break.

At the same time, Paytm will serve its large consumer base by showcasing a bigger number of exciting deals on its platforms. The sources added that founders of Little - Manish Chopra and Satish Mani - will exit following the merger.

However, there's some question of whether or not Dexter will be able to add "Bohemian Rhapsody" to his growing list of film credits, given that Bryan Singer had all but completed principal photography on what he described as his "passion project" when his contract with Fox was unexpectedly terminated.

Much about Singer's exit remains speculative, but the director apparently failed to return to the set after Thanksgiving holiday, which forced the studio to stop production.

Rami Malek will play the Queen singer in the film.

Singer also said there had been no confrontation between him and Malek, and that apart from creative differences, the two had put their differences aside and were working together harmoniously before the Thanksgiving holiday.

As well as Malek portraying enigmatic footman Freddie Mercury, Ben Hardy will portray drummer Roger Taylor, Joe Mazzello is in line to star as bassist John Deacon and Gwilym Lee will play lead guitarist Brian May.
