Singer had been warned before production began by both Fox Film chairman and CEO Stacey Snider and Fox Film vice chairman and president of production Emma Watts that they wouldn't tolerate any unprofessional behavior on his part. The two had a heated argument which didn't get physical but resulted in Singer throwing something, although the report claims the pair settled their differences and were expected to continue working. However, the future of the project is now up for debate as news comes through that Singer has been fired from production.
Singer's firing is just the latest in a series of setbacks for the long-gestating project, which churned through creative talent and prospective stars for years before finally landing Malek in the leading role of late Queen singer Freddie Mercury.

Cinematographer Thomas Newton Sigel stepped in to cover as director for some of the days Singer didn't show up. Following his no show the studio chose to end his contract.
This is yet another setback for a film that has gone through a few different directors and lead actors over the years, with Sacha Baron Cohen notably attached to star most recently.
According to insiders, Singer is claiming he is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder because of the tensions from the on-set drama.
