News > Queen Feature in ForthComing Terry Gilliam Movie

Added on 09-Jul-2001

Queen are to be featured prominently in a movie currently under development with acclaimed Director Terry GilliamQueenzoner Paul DiNuzzo writes:

Terry Gilliam is making a film version of the Neil Gaiman/Terry Pratchett classic novel, 'Good Omens'. It is best described as Monty Python's the Omen. Hysterical book.

What does this have to do with Queen? Well those who have read the book know. A demon, one of the main characters, drives around in a Bentley. Any cassette tape that is left in said Bentley for a fortnight is automatically turned into a Best of Queen tape!

Many songs are mentioned the top of my head, BoRhap, AOBTD, Radio Ga Ga, etc. In fact BoRhap is on when the Devil wants to talk to him so all of a sudden Freddie Mercury's voice speaks what Lucifer wants to tell his minion.

Some people might jump on this as Oh my god they are saying Queen is devil's music or they are mocking Queen or I see it as great satire and I think Freddie would have laughed at it...probably agreeing whole heartedly with the assumption! So if the film gets made...we might see a lot of Queen songs on the silver screen...

Many, many thanks to Paul for submitting this information.
