Despite that, Singer has remained the director of the upcoming Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, - until now.

While Singer's behavior lead to him being dropped from Bohemian Rhapsody, he apparently continues to evade repercussions for the sexual misconduct allegations - an unusual anomaly in the current climate of Hollywood, where studios are instantly distancing themselves from anyone who comes under scrutiny.

THR reported that Singer was absent during production on several occasions.

The film, a biopic about famed Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, has been in production for a long time with Singer posting many behind-the-scenes images and videos on his Instagram.

Former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh Killed in Sanaa
Al-Houthi has called for a major march in Sanaa on Tuesday for what he said was a "God sent" incident after the death of Saleh. This week's fighting reportedly left aid workers trapped inside a building and unable to administer support to civilians.

After Fox revealed yesterday (December 4th 2017) that the filmmaker was no longer a part of the film only days after they announced that filming had been halted, Bryan Singer has hit back with a claim through his attorney Andrew B. Brettler suggesting that the producers were unsympathetic towards his circumstances.

Bohemian Rhapsody, the most recent draft of which hails from Academy Award-nominated scribe Anthony McCarten (The Theory of Everything), will tell the story of Mercury, played by Rami Malek (Mr. Robot) and his iconic rock band, Queen.

The film has about two weeks left in shooting.

Malek apparently complained to the studio about Singers unreliability and unprofessionalism. It doesn't sound as if Malek was the only actor growing frustrated with Singer's behavior, as Tom Hollander, who is playing Queen manager Jim Beach, reportedly quit the film due to Singer but was convinced to come back.

Ex-president of Yemen killed by rebels
His death puts the exclamation point on the end of an era in Yemen that had, for all intents and purposes, already come to a close.

Singer reportedly failed to return to the set after their Thanksgiving holiday break which resulted in the production suspension and now his termination by Fox.

The studio terminated Singer under the "pay or play" provision of his contract, sources indicated, due to his repeated failures to show up on the set.

Singer, 52, is best known for directing the X-Men films and The Usual Suspects.

A source told The News that Singer was sacked for "a pattern of unreliable behavior on set" and that the studio wanted another director to finish the movie.

Rep. John Conyers not seeking re-election after term
He also was accused of harassment by ethics lawyer Melanie Sloan and sexual harassment by former staff member Deanna Maher. She said that one time, when she was at Conyers' home, he came out of the bathroom naked when he knew she was in the room.

Now, Singer has accused 20th Century Fox of not allowing him to take time off to care for his ill parent.
