I think I'll reserve judgement at the moment..

I have to say, I have my doubts. I'm sure if a film was made it would be a success, but I'm just a little worried about how a major Hollywood film would go about portraying Freddie.

I agree, however, that Johnny Depp would make a fantastic Freddie. He's got the same kind of facial structure and he's an excellent actor that can pull off just about any role.

Anyway.. We shall see what happens..

how ironic...

just the other day i was talking with my mum and some friends about "what if they make a movie about freddie?"...

but it had better not be all about his love life...i've heard about so many tv documentaries about almost nothing except his love life...i dont love him becuase of the people he slept with, i love him for his talent, personality and music...

The idea of a movie like that just makes me feel ill...

Knowing this "Hollywood" beast, I just dearly hope it's not too tasteless or overly doting upon things they think will get an award (if they even care about that) - like that AIDS thing.

If they're going to do it and go through his personal life, they might as well go all the way and present him as an actual person - good and bad, and not just a scandalous story.

I think it would be great if people walked away thinking they saw something they weren't supposed to. Maybe being grateful for their own privacy.


But fuck that, Hollywood will do whatever it damn well pleases.



Yeah that.

I wonder how the outcome will look like... I read somewhere in an article that Freddie's story was initially intended to be used in the We Will Rock You musical, but this plan was cancelled, because the musical then would have become very sad and tragic. But I'm really curious if this movie will be serious or just a collection of well known rumours.

If they want to make a decent movie of 2h30-3h máx, they´ll have to choose a time in Freddie´s live that´s worth the effort. If it isn´t about Queen then probably they will stick with his last five years. This way they will only need one actor to play the role.

I mean, Johny Depp is great but he can´t play the young Freddie. It´s going to be a difficult task, because Freddie doesn´t look like anyone else. And they must choose an Indian guy or at least someone with those eastern characteristics!

I would rather have a Queen film, just concentrated on the band and their music, like the Doors movie.


Take care
