100% AWESOME News For Fans Of Queen And Freddie Mercury
Freddie Mercury fans thought their chances of ever setting their eyes on the long-planned biopic about Queen's frontman were officially done and dusted, until NOW!
In 2013, fans were left disappointed to hear that Sascha Baron Cohen had dropped out of the long-in-the-works Freddie Mercury biopic over creative differences.
Baron Cohen and the remaining members of Queen never really quite saw eye-to-eye on the film. As a result, his departure effectively ended up killing the project - until now.
Last week a new actor and director were recruited to guide the biopic. Mr Robot star Rami Malek and The Usual Suspects director Bryan Singer have both signed on for the Queen film, officially titled 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.
Is this the real life, is this just fantasy?...
Over the weekend Bryan Singer took to Instagram to confirm the exciting news.
So far reactions online have been positive...
