First they say that Johnny Depp is going to play Freddie and then it is announced that Sasha Boren from Borat is to play him...I am really looking forward to the movie...I just wonder if it is really going to happen... I thought they had already began production on it...now I am not so sure...has anyone heard anything definite?

It's definitely NOT Sasha Baron Cohen according to this site and brianmay.com. Who it will be is anyone's guess. I'm not even looking forward to it. Has anyone EVER seen a GOOD biopic movie of a rock star? The Doors story was the nearest thing anyone in the movies has come close to telling it like it is.

Val Kilmer sang great on The Doors movie but it sucked to be honest. I enjoyed it, yes, but I was really mad when I learned that most of the bullshit on the movie was made-up.

To be quite honest, who would actually portray freddie and do a good job of it? The answer is NOBODY, so lets just wait and see what happens.

And before i go, i bloody hate MIKA !!

I feel better now :-)

^ I hate Mika too

In a Dutch newspaper, it was announced today that the Borat guy is going to play Freddie. Well, I hope not. Not a good idea. He really doesn't look like our Freddie. He would have to inject an awful lot of silicone into that skinny chin of him so he would look just a tiny bit like Freddie.

Also, it was said that his wild parties will play a very big role in the movie. Of course, they are only going to show his bad sides...!!

Well it's obvious that Mika will play Freddie Mercury in the movie. This movie will be a Mikorgasmic experience.

I´ve heard that some "bollywood" guy, can´t remember his name nor find the article on google, is going to play freddie. Who knows how the movie will be like. Maybe him for the first part, then Johnny for the 70-80, Borat for the "moustache-era" and someone else for his final years...Either way I´m looking forward to it. Good luck Mr. DeNiro!

Nah, the "bollywood" guy isn't really a "bollywood" guy. He's the Indian dude from Harold and Kumar and no way is that snob going to get the Freddie role.

BTW...I´ve heard that Baron Cohen has a great voice. But please note that I didn´t say he had a voice like Freddie...

Yeah, I wanna hear Sacha Baron Cohen sing. He's going to play Pirelli in the "Sweeney Todd" movie that supposedly is being released January 2008 in the states. That's some serious singing.

Then again, Johnny Depp is playing Sweeney Todd. I'm trying to picture (hear) that, but...I don't know. He had supposedly been taking singing lessons, though.

I don't know if Saddam can suck cock convincingly enough? Seeing as Freddie was a real pro at that, exercising daily for hours and hours.
