Dexter Fletcher (Eddie the Eagle) has been hired by Fox to finish directing the last two weeks of production for Bohemian Rhapsody. In case you missed it, Bryan Singer was fired from the film on Monday after not reporting to the set after a family illness.
I’m actually pleased with this directorial swap, as Eddie the Eagle is a great film. Plus, Fletcher has an Elton John biopic on the horizon, so this will be could practice for him.
What do you think of the new director? Also, do you think this is the last director dropout/switch of 2017?
Bohemian Rhapsody is still expected to make its December 25, 2018 release date.
