(Radio.com) Queen guitarist Brian May reveals that a Freddie Mercury movie is closer than ever. 'It's actually happening," May told Rolling Stone about the film. '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."

Mr. Robot star Rami Malek will have the starring role. "He has a great presence, and he's utterly dedicated to the project, which is wonderful," May enthused. "We've spent a little time with him. He's completely living and breathing Freddie already, which is just wonderful to see.

"And we have a fabulous producer in Graham King, who's probably the greatest independent producer in or out of Hollywood. And he's put together a great team. And we have a really, really great script. Finally." Read more here.
