Bohemian Rhapsody director Bryan Singer stands to make an estimated $40 million from the film’s success. And the sexual assault accusations against the 53-year-old gay filmmaker are not going to have any influence on it. Given the Queen biopic took more than $800 million at the global box office on a budget of $50 million, a standard cut would put Singer in line for a $40 million total payday, even though he was suspended from directing the film two weeks before it was complete. Dexter Fletcher stepped in to direct the remainder of the film, but Singer retained the sole direction credit on the final release, meaning he will likely still receive a substantial payout. he GLAAD Media Awards rescinded Bohemian Rhapsody‘s nomination for Best Original Film following the allegations. But the film is still nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, and Singer already has a next project lined up despite the controversy.
