Freddie Mercury & Queen biopic is officially on, Bryan Singer to direct

Freddie Mercury biopic starring Rami Malek and directed by Bryan Singer is officially a go

Bryan Singer is directing, and the film is "as-close-as-that" to the start of shooting, with pre-production beginning next week to prepare for principal photography in London as soon as mid-September. Are you excited for Bohemian Rhapsody?

The show must go on - and for the band Queen, it will, in the form of a Rami Malek-led biopic.

Also, the movie will be directed by Bryan Singer, whose previous credits include The Usual Suspects and a whole bunch of X-Men movies. Or just Radio Ga Ga? Who could imagine a more flawless fit than this brilliant actor?

Mr. Robot star Rami Malek will play Queen's iconic frontman Mercury.

As for the few specifics of the film that are now available, Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor will serve in executive producer roles. 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. "Filming in London. All roles paid", says the post, adding that they are "Looking for men and women with 70s & 80s hair".

BAFTA Award victor and Academy Award nominee, Anthony McCarten wrote the script for "Bohemian Rhapsody". The movie will begin pre-production next week in the United Kingdom, and shooting will begin in London in September.

The film, tentatively titled "Bohemian Rhapsody", has been in limbo for over 10 years, with various names attached to the director's chair and Mr. Mercury's part.

Another film he wrote, Darkest Hour, a story on the life of Winston Churchill, is due out in November and stars Baby Driver's Lily James.

"Most of it was talking to the band". Indeed, Lambert demonstrated that dynamic range time and time again on tunes as widespread as the monstrous "Stone Cold Crazy", the soulful "Another One Bites The Dust", the swinging "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" and the practically operatic "Who Wants To Live Forever".

May said it was a "really, really great script".
