Sacha Baron Cohen to play Freddie Mercury in biopic

Written by Michael Carr on January 13, 2011

In a post on the Queen website, guitarist Bryan May has said that the biopic on the band’s legendary singer Freddie Mercury will start shooting this year and that Ali G and Borat creator Sacha Baron Cohen is looking to be playing him.

“Work is now fully under way for the much-vaunted feature film on the life of Freddie,” May posted on the site. “Peter Morgan has delivered a first draft of the movie, which everyone is very excited about, and Sacha Baron Cohen is chomping at the bit to get into the role, in a way which certainly would delight Freddie ! The whole team now working on preparing for a shoot later this year, and a release in the late Autumn of 2012.
