we need someone like Bob Hoskins becuase he is british and working class, like freddie dreamed of being.
The movie will tell the story of how he worked his way up from "rag and bone man" singing "any old iron" on the street, to when he was found by Brian May and taught to use his voice for things other than collecting old metal and electronics from people’s gardens.
