Production on the upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic has been suspended after director Bryan Singer didn’t show up on the set.
“Twentieth Century Fox Film has temporarily halted production on 'Bohemian Rhapsody' due to the unexpected unavailability of Bryan Singer,” the studio said in a statement released to Deadline and other outlets.
A representative for Singer told BBC News that the director’s absence was prompted by "a personal health matter concerning Bryan and his family."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, this is not first time that Singer has disappeared during a production. He momentarily vanished during the shooting of both "X-Men: Apocalypse" and "Superman Returns."
A representative for Singer and 20th Century Fox could not immediately be reached by The Times for comment.
The film, about British rock band Queen and its frontman, Mercury, stars "Mr. Robot’s" Rami Malek as the late singer.
The movie is still expected to be released in December 2018 as planned.
