Queen Confirms Bohemian Rhapsody Biopic


Queen has confirmed that their Bohemian Rhapsody biopic is indeed happening. The new film focuses on the life of late singer Freddie Mercury.

"The film is now 'as-close-as-that' to start of shooting," the band said in a statement on their website. "Pre-production begins next week in the UK to prepare for start of principal photography in around London as soon as mid-September."

Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor will serve as executive producers while Rami Malek will portray Mercury. "He's completely living and breathing Freddie already, which is just wonderful to see," May told Rolling Stone of Malek.

Bryan Singer will also produce.

"We've been 12 years on this trail, but I think we're very close now to an announcement, which will signify that Fox has given the green light to actually supply the money. So yes, I think we're very close," May said.
