Rami Malek will play rock god Freddie Mercury in Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody”

Written by Anthony McCarten (“The Theory of Everything”), the movie will focus on the band and its iconic lead singer.

The film has been in development at 20th Century Fox and New Regency for about eight years, and is now on fast track to be made with original producer Graham King and his GK Films banner. King and Jim Beach will produce, with Denis O’Sullivan as executive producer. Original Queen band members Brian May and Roger Taylor will serve as music producers. The project is expected to begin shooting early next year.
