Sounds good!

"We have Sacha Baron Cohen, which will probably be a shock to a lot of people, but he's been talking with us for a long time," May told the HARDtalk show.

Frost/Nixon scribe Peter Morgan is writing the screenplay, he added.


"I think we'll try and keep ourselves out of it as much as we can," May said.

Not a bad casting decision.

However, he's definitely a lot taller than Freddy was. Cohen is around 6' 3" and Freddy was 5' 9" max. and has a pretty thin/small frame on him.

Yeah, Freddie was a wee fellow. They're going to have to pull some Gimli style camera tricks when he's shown next to other people.

Sure. Just have to find an actor who's around 6' 9" to play Brian May. I wonder if Tim Robbins is interested.

I'm not sure that someone dying 6 years after they appeared in Live Aid qualifies as ironic. Except maybe in an Alanis Morisette kind of way.

Didn't say it wouldn't be in there, just that it won't be 'the subject' of the film

Brilliant casting choice. I hope that's not the only good part of the film.

re: Bohemian Rhapsody (2018, D: Singer or Fletcher) S: Rami Malek -- Queen biopic

I’m hearing there could be a potential match between Tom Hooper and the Peter Morgan-scripted film about icon Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury that is set at Sony Pictures and GK Films. Sacha Baron Cohen, who just worked with Hooper on Best Picture Oscar nominee Les Miserables, has long been attached to play Mercury, one of the most gifted rock frontmen to grace the stage. From what I’m hearing, there is no formal offer at the moment and there are several offers for Hooper, who before Les Miserables helmed the Best Picture-winning The King’s Speech. But keep an eye on this one, which Graham King and Tim Headington are producing with Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal, with Queen Films.

Huh? So this isn't happening? I thought he was signed at it was already in the works.

Cohen is on board... Tom Hooper is in talks to direct, but has offers for other things.
