Mike Myers In Talks To Join Queen Biopic 'Bohemian Rhapsody'

Share

Fox and New Regency are making Bohemian Rhapsody, and with Graham King and his GK Films producing with Tribeca and Queen Films.

Rami Malek has been tapped to portray Queen's iconic frontman Freddie Mercury, while Ben Hardy, Joe Mazzello and Gwilym Lee will play drummer Roger Taylor, bassist John Deacon, and lead guitarist Brian May, respectively. It's now unclear who Myers would play. They opened with the first part of "Bohemian Rhapsody", then quickly segued into then-recent hits "Radio Gaga" and "Hammer to Fall" and perennial favorite "Crazy Little Thing Called Love". The cast now includes Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, Gwilym Lee as Brian May, Ben Hardy as Roger Taylor and Joe Mazello as John Deacon.

But thankfully, a leaked video of a recreation of Live Aid and a photo release (above) of Rumi Malek as Freddie confirms that the show will go on. You can see Brian May off to the side of the stage in this Instagram pic.

Still in production, the film is directed by "X-Men" director Bryan Singer and written by Anthony McCarten ("The Theory of Everything").

The movie reportedly chronicles the band's years leading up to that Live Aid performance, which revitalized Queen's career.
