Queen's Brian May Confirms Freddie Mercury Biopic Is On The Way
'Da Ali G Show' and 'Borat' star Sacha Baron Cohen is set to portray Mercury in the film. May provided the following details in his update on his official website:
"Ah I promised news of yesterday's Queen band meeting. Well, it was just Roger and Jim Beach and myself we are a small cottage industry !! Our main agenda was the Freddie film which, I'm happy to tell you, is on course. Much of our discussion was about contractual things it's pretty complex . and determining who is responsible for what. The pieces are all falling into place, though we are now on a slightly later schedule filming is now scheduled to start in the Spring, with Sacha Baron Cohen playing Freddie. The film should be ready for release early in 2014."
