Queen-related activity in 2011
“QOL is entering a new phase in an important year for Queen, in our 40th Anniversary year. To launch our new record deal with Island Records, there will be a lot of activity. A huge amount of work has already been put in behind the scenes, to unleash a completely newly mastered set of the original Queen LP’s and CD’s. I know our fans will appreciate the attention to detail, bringing the early albums closer than ever to the magic of the Vinyl originals, but with the benefit of up-to-the-minute quality technology. Preparations are also well under way for the “Stormtroopers in Stilettoes” exhibition in London in the Spring, which will highlight in some innovative ways the growth of the ‘Early Queen’. Work is now fully under way for the much-vaunted feature film on the life of Freddie. 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. We are also laying the foundations for WWRY THE MOVIE, and again, we already have a great script for it from Ben.”
“Roger and I will be working together on new WWRY theatre projects, too, beginning with the imminent launch of the show in Norway next month. And we have a couple of interesting new buns in the studio oven, about which more soon. I will be doing some selected UK dates bringing ‘Anthems’ to life with Kerry Ellis in concert halls, including the Albert Hall in May. But Roger and I keep an ever-open door for ideas for Queen, the band, which, somehow, refuses to lie down! “
Cheers and a Happy New Year!
Brian

“WOW!!! 40 years of Queen. Who’d have thought it? As Brian’s given you all the info on our 40th year, i’ll keep it short. I can’t believe it’s been that long and that we are still around in such a big way. Amazed and grateful !!!”

It's funny how they said nothing about new concert releases.


It's late, but it's time to set me free

It's late, yes I know but there's no way it has to be

Too late, so let the fire take our bodies this night

So late, so let the waters take our guilt in the t

It's nice they took the time to write to the fans.  It is interesting, these days when you watch the credits for the movies and realize how much goes into post production (I guess); just how many hundreds of people it takes to make a movie and how many companies are involved.  It is hard to imagine, really.  So, filming one year and having the movie be released at the end of the next year must be the "norm" these days (I have no idea).  I can't wait to see it.  I am mostly looking forward to the story being told, and also hearing the music in the movie theater with the big speakers.

This sounds great. I just hope that there isn't an album with 10 different singers. That got really tiring after a full decade of one singer, one song, one off short performances. Whether you liked Paul Rodgers or not, at least it was a consistent band.

That's not a joke about his enormous horsie teeth is it?  Bad form, guys ... bad form.

I'd like to hear the first 2 albums completely re-mixed (I don't mean re-mixed by DJ Knobhead or something) I mean re-mixed to bring some life into their sounds more than remastered. I've mentioned on a previous thread that the overall sound of the first Queen album is quite muddy compared to others from that era. I'd love for it to be done by the remaining members whilst they are still with us too.

A WWRY movie?

This will end up as Flash 2.0, me thinks.

lets hope that nothing happens to Brian as he seems the most enthusiastic about Queens "future", Roger seems happy to go along with it but not as much as Brian

maybe im wrong, i usually am

I was going to go down the cock route, but your's is so much funnier!

Nice to see they've taken the time out to write a message but no details about what the bonus material is or, as it's already been noted, "new" releases.

WWRY movie doesn't suprise me to be honest, although I think its best left as a stage show.
