“Bohemian Rhapsody” Celebrates Queen in New Biopic
The first ever biopic of Queen is set to take the big screen this November.
Rumors of a movie documenting the life and career of Queen have been circulating since 2010, but now it looks like it's actually happening.
A full-length movie trailer released today, sending Classic Rock enthusiasts into a tizzy.
Rami Malek will play eccentric frontman Freddie Mercury, replacing Sacha Baron Cohen who was originally cast but left the project in 2013 over "creative differences" with Mercury's former bandmates. The film's official synopsis describes it as "a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet."
"Bohemian Rhapsody" is set for release November 2 in the US.
