Sounds like someone wants to break free: Fox has suspended filming on its upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic because, last we checked, the show can’t go on without its director.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film’s high-profile helmer, Bryan Singer, “failed to return to set after the Thanksgiving holiday break, leaving producers nervous about the state of the production and talking about potentially replacing him.”
Fox confirmed the production delay in a statement to Mashable: “Twentieth Century Fox Film has temporarily halted production on Bohemian Rhapsody due to the unexpected unavailability of Bryan Singer.”
No word on what Singer’s “unexpected availability” entails, although a rep for Singer tells Variety the director’s absence is due to “a personal health matter concerning Bryan and his family. Bryan hopes to get back to work on the film soon after the holidays.”
But that might not be the whole story. According to THR:
“Sources say that filming on the biopic has not been easy. For example, insiders tell THR that producers and his star had grown tired of Singer’s behavior, which saw him routinely show up late to set. Another source has said that a cinematographer had to step in and direct during a previous ‘non-showing.'”
THR also reports that Singer has apparently “disappeared during a production” before, on Superman Returns and X-Men: Apocalypse.
Bohemian Rhapsody stars Mr. Robot’s Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, Ben Hardy as Roger Taylor, Gwilym Lee as Brian May, and Joseph Mazzello as John Deacon.
Stephen King tweets 5 words about the ‘IT’ sequel, instantly goes viral
Stephen King wants you to know the second part of ‘IT’ is on the way…
“It’s not often you find yourself eagerly awaiting a fresh glimpse of a nightmare-inducing clown, but here we are.
It’s now been well over a year since Andrés Muschietti’s IT adaptation giggled its way into theatres, before going on to smash the previous record for highest-grossing U.S. box office horror movie. Since then, we’ve had some good — if slightly far-off sounding — news: IT Chapter Two will be coming to theatres on 6 Sept. 2019.
Okay, so that may still be nine months away, but — judging by Stephen King’s recent tweet — we may be due a clown-themed surprise earlier than expected.
IT CHAPTER 2 is coming.
— Stephen King (@StephenKing) December 4, 2018
So, what exactly does that mean, then?
Well, if we had to guess, it seems likely that King has recently seen some promotional material relating to the film — possibly an image, or maybe even some early footage. Perhaps something that we may get to see ourselves before too long.
It certainly feels like we’re overdue some Pennywise…
Feels like it’s been 27 years.”

Zac Efron just shared a new photo of himself as serial killer Ted Bundy
“The last time we saw our favourite teen heartthrob Zac Efron, he was prancing around the stage in The Greatest Showman. But in his next movie, Zefron is taking it in a whole other direction.
The former High School Musical and Baywatch star just shared a new photo of himself in the upcoming movie Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, where he portrays infamous American serial killer Ted Bundy.
Efron shared a photo of what appears to be Bundy in a courtroom, captioned “Ready for Sundance!”
Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile is set to premiere at the film festival in January 2019.
The movie tells the story of Ted Bundy from the perspective of his girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer, played by Lily Collins (daughter of Phil).
Real-life Ted Bundy murdered at least 30 women between 1973 and 1978. He was sentenced to death and died in the electric chair in the state of Florida in 1989.
If Zefron is as good at acting like a complete psychopath as he is at dancing, singing, and basketball, this movie’s bound to be good.”
‘Game of Thrones’ filmed fake scenes to keep Season 8 secrets
“The secrets of the realm must always be protected, which is why Game of Thrones Season 8 filmed fake scenes to mislead spies and sleuths who are after the final season’s secrets.
Director David Nutter confirmed to Huffington Post that he had in fact filmed scenes he knew were fake.
Actress Sophie Turner previously brought up such measures in October, along with on-set “drone killers,” fake script titles, and more.
“Sometimes there were paparazzi in amazing places on construction cranes and all kinds of crazy places, to try to get a point of view of things,” Nutter told HuffPo.
“They were all over, everywhere, trying to get in on what was happening. But it was definitely a situation where there was no paper on the set,” he continued. “[The production team] wanted to make sure nobody knew what was happening, and they went to the nth degree, like they do on the show in general. They basically take it to the point where it’s like the Gestapo. It’s tough to get answers.”
Though these lengths sound extreme, Nutter seems confident they’ll be worth it in the end……………………………..”
