Freddie Mercury film in production

FreddieMercury.jpgBrian May, the big haired guitarist of Queen, has announced that there's a Freddie Mercury film in the works and that casting has begun.

Mercury was the lead singer of Queen, one of the best bands ever, and the band who were responsible for music videos becoming art forms in themselves. They produced some great music and a wide variety of styles, all sporting that superb Mercury voice which had such incredible range. Remember the soundtrack to Flash Gordon, Highlander or more recently that car scene in Wayne's World Not to mention the cracking tunes they came out with outside of film. Fat Bottomed Girls, We Will Rock You, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, I Want to Break Free...I could go on forever.

According to Daily Express "Newspaper" through Cinematical:

"There is a film in the pipeline and we're all involved in it. I'm not allowed to say much about it and casting isn't finalised but we've had some incredible offers to play Freddie. Really incredible,"

I'd love to see this film, but I want to see it done well, with an actor who really can carry off the part of Freddie. No poor lipsyncing please, someone who really can capture the on stage excitement and passion of Mercury.

Oh my! Who can play a really good Freddie Mercury?

that would be amaizing as long as they dont cock it up

YES;A FILM IN THE HONOUR OF fREDDIE WOULD BE GOOD: bUT IT WILL BE VERY HARD TO PLEASE ;E; BECAUSE I THINK NOONE CAN COPY FREDDIE: HE WAS AND IS SIMPLY TO GOOD: NOONE CAN GET TO HIS STANDARD: THERES TO MANY BAD COPY-CATS: BUT LETS SEE.......?????

"that would be amazing as long as they dont cock it up"


I would be amazed if they didn't.

So how about Johnny Depp as he has the spitting image of his face-if you have seen some of his films like From Hell and the Libertean with long Black hair you know he looks the part-he is a great actor and would be the only credible actor to do Freddie proud as he should be honoured by such an esteemed actor and would be a hit with many devote Queen fans.Apparently I have heard his own production company have already been indicated as a possiblility with Johnny very interested in the project-lets hope.

i thought alot about an actor who can play freddie , am not sure it needs a very strong one , Jonny depp perhaps or casey afleck!!!
