Los Angeles, CA (BANG) - He was once considered one of the world's most famous singers and now, for the first time, his band members are making sure his story will forever be immortalized on the big screen.



Fifteen years later, Freddie Mercury's life story will soon be turned into a Hollywood movie.



The legendary Queen lead singer - famous for such hits as "We Are The Champions" and "Bohemian Rhapsody" - tragically died of AIDS in 1991 and now his former band mate Brian May has revealed a biopic about his troubled life is on the way.



The guitarist told Britain's Daily Express newspaper, "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 finalized but we've had some incredible offers to play Freddie. Really incredible."



May has also lifted the lid on his next project, a new album with Queen drummer Roger Taylor. It will be the first Queen record of new material since Mercury's untimely death.



May said, "It's going really well. Is there a track which will be a tribute to Freddie? Well, we're just writing what we want at the moment but it's all a tribute to Freddie. I mean, without him, we wouldn't be here."



The rock band's back catalogue is already the inspiration for long-running West End musical "We Will Rock You" and recently a TV documentary, "Freddie Mercury: A Kind Of Magic," was aired to commemorate what would have been the singer's 60th birthday.
