London, Dec 7 (IANS) Dexter Fletcher has replaced Bryan Singer as the director of "Bohemian Rhapsody", a biopic of band Queen.

Production of the film will resume next week in London, reports variety.com.

Fletcher has projects like "Eddie the Eagle" and "Wild Bill" to his credit.

His role as a director on "Bohemian Rapsody" comes after Singer was fired by 21st Century Fox for being unprofessional and for continuous absenteeism on the sets. However, Singer slammed the company for not being compassionate as he was taking care of his ailing parents.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" features Rami Malek in the lead role as Freddie Mercury, the frontman for Queen. Penned by Justin Haythe, the film is scheduled to release on December 25 next year.
