Fletcher only has a few directing credits to his name - Wild Bill (2011), Sunshine on Leith (2013) and Eddie the Eagle (2016) - but he's also an established actor who's been working since 1976. Fox announced the change-up on Wednesday, Dec. 6, merely two days after dismissing Singer from the job. Singer's unexpected absence shut down production, forcing Fox to take immediate action.

With Bryan Singer gone, Fletcher has now stepped in.

The studio's decision to terminate Singer came after an escalating clash between the director and Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek, who is playing Queen frontman Freddie Mercury.

It remains to be seen how much of Bohemian Rhapsody will be Fletcher's and his much of it will be Singer's.

The filmmaker will then oversee postproduction as Fox hopes to keep the film on track for December 2018. A mere few days later, he was sacked for "unreliability and unprofessionalism", and allegedly even got into a tense confrontation with Malek over his absences.

Fox fired Singer over unexplained absences from the set, but Singer claimed that the studio refused to give him time off to take care of a sick parent.
