Queen has confirmed that their biopic, which has been in works for over 10 years now, is "finally happening" via a new post on the band's official website. "Mr Robot" actor Rami Malek is set to portray Freddie Mercury in the movie. According to Queen members, Roger Taylor and Brian May, who are serving as executive music producers, "Rami has great presence and he's utterly dedicated to the project.
He's completely living and breathing Freddie already, which is wonderful." Bryan Singer is directing the project with pre-production beginning next week to prepare for principal photography in London as soon as mid-September.
