Bohemian Rhapsody is an upcoming biographical film directed by Bryan Singer about Freddie Mercury and the rock band Queen. The script is written by Anthony McCarten and will focus on the time period between the formation of the band in 1970 and their groundbreaking Live Aid performance in 1985. Singer has mentioned that Freddie Mercury's illness and death will be honored in the film, but he wants the band's musical journey to be the focal point. 


It is scheduled for release on December 25, 2018 by 20th Century Fox. Filming started only a couple of days ago, but it's been a long road to get to this point. In 2013, there was a fallout with Sacha Baron Cohen (originally intended for the leading role) over creative differences. But now production is in full swing and the cast members have been announced.


Gwilym Lee as Brian May




Ben Hardy as Roger Taylor




Joe Mazello (Timmy from Jurassic Park!) as John 'Deaky' Deacon




And of course the impeccable Rami Malek (many of you might remember him from Until Dawn) as Freddie Mercury.




In addition to the cast being announced, earlier today several photos were leaked showing the Bo Rhap boys (as christened by Brian May) reenacting Live Aid. The filming took place at Bovington Airfield in England. Filming is expected to continue there until October. 






Lastly, here is some leaked footage of the movie being filmed. Enjoy!

Looks like it could be interesting. I'll see for sure.

I just came across this video comparing the actors with the real thing.

Bloody hell that's uncanny. Freddie and May are absolutely spot on.

Apparently Mike Myers has signed on to play a part, bringing things full circle from his Bohemian Rhapsody scene in Wayne's World. Who he's playing has yet to be revealed though, so it's unclear whether he'll be light comic relief or a more serious role.

Always amazed how they can make actors look like the real thing.  I wonder who I could pull off?  Probably, and don't laugh, a younger Charlie Sheen.

Found another pic of Rami as Freddie (and a spitting image of Brian May in the background ;))

I can't be the only one who doesn't like the song?

Interested to see how this goes down, though.
