Director Bryan Singer is suffering from illness and that has postponed work on the Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody”.
The film about the late, great frontman of Queen has had scenes shot in the United Kingdom. 20th Century Fox announced the temporary halt on production in a statement published by BBC.
The movie studio simply said “production on Bohemian Rhapsody [stopped] due to the unexpected unavailability of Bryan Singer.”
A representative for the multi-time “X-Men” director elaborated, saying “a personal health matter concerning Bryan and his family” was the cause. “Bryan hopes to get back to work on the film soon after the holidays,” the statement added.
The starring role of Mercury is in the talented hands of “Mr. Robot” lead Rami Malek.
“Bohemian Rhapsody” is expected to rock theatres worldwide in Dec. 2018.
