When Ron Howard famously took the reins of Lucasfilm's Han Solo film after original directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord were fired earlier this year, he reshot large chunks of the film under the supervision of the studio - he effectively made it his own.

Singer was sacked this week after not reporting back to the set after Thanksgiving break; In a statement he said he was caring for an elderly parent and also minimized claims of feuding on set with star Rami Malek.

Singer later issued a statement regarding his departure.

"'Bohemian Rhapsody' is a passion project of mine". With fewer than three weeks to shoot remaining, I asked Fox for some time off so I could return to the U.S. to deal with pressing health matters concerning one of my parents. Unfortunately, the studio was unwilling to accommodate me and terminated my services. So far the movie remains on track for its 2018 release, according to Den Of Geek.

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. After reports of the director's unexpected absences from the film set, which required director of photography Newton Thomas Sigel to step in, and rising tensions between Singer and star Rami Malek, Fox went ahead and cut Singer loose.
