Queen guitarist Brian May has confirmed that the biopic about late singer Freddie Mercury is due for 2014 release.
Sacha Baron Cohen will star as Mercury, and we are already hearing an Oscar acceptance speech for Borat. We think he could do wonders as the flamboyant, fabulous singer.
May said, "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."
Other details? May revealed, "The film should be ready for release early in 2014. We did make some other plans, but they will have to stay under wraps for now. Being in Queen is – bizarrely – as full of surprising twists and turns as ever - 40 years since we first got together, and 20 years after losing Freddie. But of course Freddie is in so many ways very much alive. He must be wryly smiling somewhere!!!"
