The upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic has a release date

Music 14/04/2017

For over four years, we’ve been anticipating the brand new biopic that will revolve around the life of Queen front man Freddie Mercury.

The project was originally introduced back in 2012, and has undergone some big speed-bumps over the years trying to get it developed.

A few actors were in the mix for landing the starring role, mainly Sacha Baron Cohen. Cohen, however, got into disputes with Brian May because they both had conflicting ideas on what should be portrayed in the movie. However, the role has been given to Rami Malek.

Brian May spilled the beans on when to expect the biopic in his latest interview:

The Freddie film is coming … sooner than you might think, next year.
