Brian May says he's often thought of the way Freddie Mercury handled his final illness when dealing with the aftermath of the Queen guitarist's own health scare. Mercury died in 1991 from complications relating to the AIDS virus.
Producers behind the upcoming biopic about late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury apparently have found an actor to take on the lead role as well as a director for the project. Deadline reports that Ben Whishaw, who played Q in the 2012 James Bond film Skyfall, will portray Mercury, while actor-turned-filmmaker Dexter Fletcher will direct the flick.
After months of delays, word is now circulating that Dexter Fletcher has been tapped to direct the Freddie Mercury biopic. Perhaps more importantly, Ben Whishaw will play Freddie Mercury, replacing Sacha Baron Cohen, who left over the summer.
At some point, everybody has expressed a desire to go back in time and rock out with their favorite musicians. Now, a new museum is on the way to making that dream a reality, at least in one sense of the word.
Earlier this summer, Sacha Baron Cohen dropped out of the long-gestating Freddie Mercury biopic due to disagreements with the remaining Queen band members over the content and tone of the film, but now it looks like his replacement may have been found. 'Captain America' star Dominic Cooper is rumored as the latest actor looking to step into Mercury's unitard.
