Johnny Depp a Queen? - OP/ED

(Cat8Dog) Hollywood plans to make yet another movie about a dead rock star. Johnny Depp is supposedly in the running to play Freddie Mercury in a film about the late Queen singer. The Independent reports that "Robert de Niro's company, Tribeca Productions, is said to be behind the project" and that Queen's guitarist Brian May confirmed via his website that the film was in the early stages of development.

May said of Depp as Mercury, "He would be a worthy counterpart for Freddie on screen. I don't think I can say any more right now."

Depp was also supposedly inline to play Ozzy Osbourne in a biopic about the bleeping Prince of Darkness but no word on where that film is at. Maybe Sharon couldn't get enough cash from the deal? Christopher Walken has reportedly signed on to play Ozzy in the film version of Motley Crue's "The Dirt".
