A film tribute to rock band Queen is being produced, prompting a battle between the biggest showbiz names desperate to be cast as the late Freddie Mercury.
The We Will Rock You musical which features the band's hits, has been a massive success. But this movie is the first ever attempt to document the charismatic singer's life. Mercury died of an Aids related illness in 1991.

The surviving members of the band - Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon - will all be involved in the project.

Guitarist May says, "There is a film in the pipeline and we're all involved in it.

"I'm not allowed to say much about it and casting isn't finalised but we've had some incredible offers to play Freddie. Really incredible."

Johnny Depp would fit the "really incredible" category.

LOL @ Both radio_ and Serry! ;-)))

Ah, squeeze Curry into a leotard and he'll be fine.

And do you think that Nathalie would also do some concert-footage? From, like, the second half of the show when Freddie would take off his upper parts?? :-P

Not to mention way to old to give a remotely realistic picture of a somewhat younger Freddie.

Whoever plays freddie is going to have to continually lose a lot of weight for about the last 50 minutes of the movie or so, around the miracle and innuendo years.

John has retired from the music industry, not from life all together!!
If a film is made, im sure he will be involved in some way or another, no matter how small.
John was a big part of Queen, so IMO he will be involved.
It is pessimistic to think otherwise.

Innuendo or Kashmir? Both awesome!

But it's the thought that counts, so thanks to jeroen for suggesting Tim Curry. : ) I saw Tim Curry a few weeks ago as King Arthur in Spamalot. He's still brilliant.


Ready Freddie?
