You've been hearing rumors about Bohemian Rhapsody The Film for some time, but now QOL [Queen Online] is about to become your most direct source of official information. If you've ever seen Singer's X-Men films, or the groundbreaking movie The Usual Suspects, you'll know this is a director with extraordinary imagination and style. "A ideal choice to recreate the fabulous Queen years which brought us such unforgettable moments as Live Aid, which we can reveal will be faithfully recreated for a key sequence (in) the film". "So yes, I think we're very close", May said. "More on that very soon".
Numerous actors have reportedly been in the running for the role of flamboyant Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, with "Borat" star Sacha Baron Cohen and comedian Russell Brand rumoured at various times to having clinched the coveted role (Cohen, in fact, confirmed he was in talks for the role, but claims he left the project due to creative differences with the band).
Rami Malek will take on the lead role of Freddie Mercury
Of Malek, who shot to attention as Elliot Alderson in Mr Robot, they wrote that "Rami has great presence and he's utterly dedicated to the project". "Who could imagine a more flawless fit than this brilliant actor?" the announcement asks. "That, friends, is news for another day, and just one good reason for you to make QOL and Queen Facebook your regular stops to check in for the very latest updates, and who, knows, maybe even one or two exclusives". Of course, that "global jukebox" featured Queen with its late front man Freddie Mercury, who completely stole the show at Wembley Stadium and reinforced an already legendary foundation to an worldwide audience long before the internet's existence.
May and Taylor are set to serve as the film's executive music producers. Pre-production begins next week in the United Kingdom to prepare for start of principal photography in around London as soon as mid-September. You are probably wondering, who will play Roger, Brian and John??? Hint: "Fancy being in the film?".
