Dexter Fletcher has been tapped to replace Bryan Singer as director on the nearly completed Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.
According to Variety production on the recently stalled movie, which was originally thought to be delayed until the new year, will now instead resume next week in London. There are reportedly only two weeks of filming remaining for the project, which is still scheduled to be released on December 25, 2018.
Fletcher has been an actor for over 40 years, landing his first role alongside Jodie Foster and Scott Baio in the 1976 child mob musical Bugsy Malone. He has directed two previous films, 2012’s Wild Bill and last year’s Hugh Jackman-starring Eddie the Eagle.
