"The Queen" Director May Helm Freddie Mercury Biopic, with Sacha Baron Cohen

"The Queen" Director May Helm Freddie Mercury Biopic, with Sacha Baron CohenSubmit Comment
Sacha Baron Cohen has been talking about wanting to star in a biopic about Queen frontman Freddie Mercury for years. And now comes word that his "Hugo" producer Graham King has decided to help him make it happen.

Variety is reporting that "The Queen" helmer Stephen Frears has emerged as an early frontrunner to direct the new movie, but several other filmmakers remain in the mix. The latest draft of the script comes from the writing team of Stephen J. Rivele and Christopher Wilkinson (Ali, Nixon).

Story focuses on Queen's formative years, leading up to the band's heralded appearance at Live Aid in 1985. Mercury died of complications from AIDS in 1991, though the film won't focus on the singer's last days.

Producers have already landed a music-rights package that includes Queen's biggest hits, including "Bohemian Rhapsody," "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions." It's the first time the surviving members of Queen have licensed songs and music publishing rights for a movie about the band. Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon will be involved with the production, though it remains unclear whether Baron Cohen will perform the musical numbers himself.

As long as I don't have to see him and his big bucked teeth sucking some dude off, I may watch this. One day. Maybe.

Nah. I'm lying.

He was gay as Trvo, but his music isn't nearly as gay as REO Speedwagon, and those guys claimed to like women.

Yeah, I think they're lying too.

I wonder if Mercury ever took Travolta's temperature?

I thought this was done already

They can double feature this with the Liberace movie in Travolta Airlines

Since Borat & Brüno, S. Baron Cohen tend to take very seriously the homosexual character and I wouldn' be surprised if he'll be sucking some d*cks in that one!

Rock opera had his time in the 70's but I'm not so sure for today...
