Freddie Mercury, the Untold Story was included in the Freddie Mercury The Solo Collection. It was the story of his life from birth to death, with interviews from family and friends.

I hate the idea of filming the life of Freddie Mercury.
Why?
Because I'm convinced that it can not be done good enough.

It's weird, this year a ton of biopic films have been made about famous music artists...all with great expectations..but the ONLY one that did great and both fans and critics loved was Ray about Ray Charles.

I had high hopes for Beyond The Sea about Bobby Darrin and it FLOPPED, and everypne hated Kevin Spacey in it.

Now they're talking about doing Janis Joplins' story with Pink...which alot of people are BIG TIME against..especially since Bette Midler did a "loose" portrayal of her mixed in with Bette's own life in "The Rose" which was outstanding (I LOVE Bette in that film).

Yet Diana Ross got very mixed reviews for her portrayal of the legendary Billie Holiday. She got an Oscar nomination, but fans and critics of Billie thought Diana's portrayal was AWFUL and blasphemic.

Biopics are real chancy...you have to get the right actor/actress...get the story down where it nails more than anything else, what drives their talent and made them so fascinating while not being tabloid in nature, or at the same time, gloss over their life with rose colored glasses.

Freddie was SO legendary and larger than life...I really can't see any actor or even music artist I can think of...giving Freddie's story and portrayal justice.
