Freddie Mercury and Queen biopic halted as Bryan Singer is ''temporarily unavailable''

Twentieth Century Fox told the BBC work had been temporarily halted "due to the unexpected unavailability" of Singer.

The studio issued a statement on Friday, Dec. 1, saying that the production of Bohemian Rhapsody has been suspended temporarily owing to the unforeseen absence of the director, who is also a co-producer on the upcoming project. A representative for the director said that the halt was due to "a personal health matter concerning Bryan and his family".

The film, titled Bohemian Rhapsody, will tell the story of the late Queen frontman's life.
