I think he will. If he's busy, the film can wait for him. But even if he's bogged down for years, I doubt he'd pass it up. The one consistency that is always present with Johny Depp's work is his need to constantly take on giant challenges and play unique new roles. It doesn't get more challenging than Freddie Mercury.

I think he'll play Freddie and that he'll end up winning the Oscar for Best Actor for it. That being said, I still would prefer Gael Garcia Bernal.

He sort of does look like Freddie, the high cheekbones and the same mysterious eyes...

Exactly what I think. Just add a little more teeth, a little more chin... and a little more chest hair ^^

yeah, but really even if i do think that he looks like freddie, he won't be the best actor for this role. johnny depp is a character in itself, and it will be difficult for most of us to see him as Freddie Mercury, and not as Johnny Depp. well, that's my oppinion.
sorry, if this doesn't make any sense, my english is quite bad, and i tried my best to be understood. ;)

Other than a superficial resemblance to Mr Mercury, I really have trouble with Sasha what'shisface as Freddie. He lacks something very important, in my opinion: Charisma. And, there appears to be a certain weakness about him, whereas Freddie exuded power. I just don't know.

Couldn't really see Depp as Mercury, either, however, he DOES have that aforementioned power and charisma.
I think I'd much rather see someone whose energy resembled Freddie than someone with an appropriate mustache and chest hair.
Hopefully, I will be proved wrong!!

I said this on another forum already, but I still stand by my saying that Tim Curry should play Freddie. He looks exactly like him. Everyone should pop Rocky Horror Picture Show into their DVD player right now.

Isn't Mr Curry a bit old to play a young Freddie, though? Even with makeup and camera angles..
And, he just seems so...large, somehow...

Honestly, I don't know that anyone would really live up to my expectations, and, I suppose Mr May, who knew Freddie in a way that I never will, may be more qualified to pick an actor to play him.
