Singer was sacked Monday after production on the film was suspended due to his absence.

Dexter Fletcher, a British filmmaker and actor whose credits include Eddie The Eagle, Sunshine On Leith and Wild Bill, is now on the case, with filming expected to resume soon.

The X-MEN helmer was terminated due to an extended absence from the London film set that caused a production shutdown.

There remains about two more weeks of shooting on Bohemian Rhapsody, Variety noted, citing sources. On-set reports also claim that on at least one occasion, the film's cinematographer Newton Thomas Sigel had to direct a scene while waiting for Singer.

Fletcher joins the production after Singer was sacked on Monday after he failed to show up to set on multiple occasions.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" is scheduled for release Christmas 2018.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio's decision to oust Singer came after a growing conflict between Mr. Robot star Rami Malek, who's playing Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, and the director, apparently over Singer's frequent absences from the set. A mere few days later, he was sacked for "unreliability and unprofessionalism", and allegedly even got into a tense confrontation with Malek over his absences.

'Bryan Singer is no longer the director of Bohemian Rhapsody, ' Twentieth Century Fox said in a statement.

He added: 'Rami and I successfully put those differences behind us and continued to work on the film together until just prior to Thanksgiving'.

The movie also stars Mike Myers, "Game of Thrones" star Aidan Gillen, and "Sing Street"'s Lucy Boynton.
