Dexter Fletcher to direct Freddie Mercury biopic

Only two weeks of production remained when Singer was sacked when he failed to return to the London set of the film, which stars Mr. Robot's Rami Malek as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury.

His experience in front of the camera will probably go a long way toward establishing a rapport with Malek, who reportedly clashed with Singer on multiple occasions.

Fox has now announced that Fletcher, whose previous directing credits include "Eddie The Eagle" and "Sunshine On Leith", has been hired to replace Singer. Following the departure of original star Sacha Baron Cohen back in 2013, director Bryan Singer was sacked from the film earlier this week.

Singer had managed to finish shooting principle photography before he was booted from the project, thus the question of who receives directorial credit is still up in the air.
