Bohemian Rhapsody has been filming in London with Emmy-winning Mr. Robot star Rami Malek in the lead as Mercury, the band's frontman who needs no introduction. Now that Fletcher has agreed to take the reins, production is expected to resume next week, and the film is in no danger of missing its December 2018 release date.

Fletcher joins the production after Singer was sacked on Monday after he failed to show up to set on multiple occasions. That means Bohemian Rhapsody will hit theaters on December 25, 2018, as planned.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Malek and Singer resolved their differences, but the film had to shut down production after Singer's continued absences. For Fletcher, working on the Queen movie will serve as practice for the Elton John biopic he's attached to direct.

Singer, however, accused Fox of not letting him have time off the project to deal with health issues for one of his parents.
