Bohemian Rhapsody, an upcoming biopic about the legendary band Queen starring Rami Malek, has been ‘temporarily halted.’

‘Twentieth Century Fox Film has temporarily halted production on Bohemian Rhapsody due to the unexpected unavailability of Bryan Singer,’ Fox’s statement reads.

Director Bryan Singer is dealing with a health issue, his representative told BBC.

Both Singer and his family are said to be suffering from health problems, but no additional details have been released.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Singer failed to return to set after the Thanksgiving break.

‘Bryan hopes to get back to work on the film soon after the holidays,’ the representative added.

Regardless, the film is still expected to be released 25 December, 2018.

The film

Starring Mr. Robot’s Rami Malek as Freddy Mercury, Bohemian Rhapsody has been filming in London.

The film will chronicle the band from 1970 to their performance at Live Aid in 1985, six years before Mercury passed away due to complications from AIDS.
