Bohemian Rhapsody

Recommended Posts

Queen

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.

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

Apparently

, 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.

I wouldn't even put Bohemian Rhapsody in my top 10 favorite Queen songs. But you can't argue it didn't have an impact. It stayed at the top of the singles charts for nine weeks, and later hit number 1 again when Wayne's World came out.

 

Anyway, I didn't think it was a good title for the movie, but it's grown on me. Makes sense too.

 

Bohemian - A person who has informal and unconventional social habits, especially an artist or writer.

 

Rhapsody - A free instrumental composition in one extended movement, typically one that is emotional or exuberant in character.

 

Sounds like the life of Freddie Mercury to me.

I would've named it One Vision. Like I said before, it's my favorite song by Queen.

Latest pic of Rami. They turned part of London into midtown NYC. And here we see a Freddie from what appears to be the mid 80s. The giveaway is the Mr. Bad Guy album in the shop window.

Good riddance.

 

The allegations against him have been unsettling. So it's just as well that he's fired. Though I'm surprised to read that Singer and Malek have been at odds with one another. Apparently things got super tense when Singer threw an object on set.

 

I'm just glad they'll be naming a new director within the next few days and that the project will go on.

Interesting article about Singer's response to being fired. If what he said is true, I guess I kind of feel bad for him. Anyway, judge for yourselves.




Quote from Singer:


Bohemian Rhapsody is a passion project of mine. With fewer than three weeks to shoot remaining, I asked Fox for some time off so I could return to the U.S. to deal with pressing health matters concerning one of my parents. This was a very taxing experience, which ultimately took a serious toll on my own health. Unfortunately, the studio was unwilling to accommodate me and terminated my services. This was not my decision and it was beyond my control. Rumors that my unexpected departure from the film was sparked by a dispute I had with Rami Malek are not true. While, at times, we did have creative differences on set, Rami and I successfully put those differences behind us and continued to work on the film together until just prior to Thanksgiving. I wanted nothing more than to be able to finish this project and help honor the legacy of Freddie Mercury and Queen, but Fox would not permit me to do so because I needed to temporarily put my health, and the health of my loved ones, first.

Dexter Fletcher was named the new director a few days ago. Project is back on its feet again with only 2 weeks of shooting left.

I'm right there with you, Star-Lord. I can't even begin to tell you how I excited I am. My worst fear is that the movie flops. Worse yet though, actually, is even if the movie does well the story isn't faithful to what really happened. So many things can go wrong. They only have one chance to do Freddie justice.

 

I wonder when we'll get the first trailer. Probably late spring/early summer? Can't happen soon enough!!! :D

I've been keeping up with the movie ever since it was announced. It's definitely worth watching. Rami Malek is really talented and I'm sure he'll do justice to his portrayal of Freddie. I think we can expect a trailer around late summer. Can't expect some pre/early summer info anytime soon. My exception lies on the part that they'll keep the storyline somewhat close to the truth.

Would be amazing if we saw glimpses of David Bowie and Elton John. Apparently, after Queen's performance, Elton approached Queen and said they'd "stolen the f*cking show." Lol

 

By the way, Brian posted this on his blog the other day:

 

Wow ! I'm an (honorary) film mogul ! Today, under the auspices of our new supreme pilot, Dexter Fletcher, I got my own directorial chair ! I was very touched. So ! My first day on the set of Bohemian Rhapsody the Movie for more than 6 weeks, and the atmosphere is massively warm and joyful. The entire BR company has been through storms which would have sunk many a ship, but they're all still on board, full of optimism - and with a team spirit stronger than ever. There's such a great feeling of pride in this movie. I wish I could show you pictures ! But for now it's good to protect the surprises. The Bohemian Rhapsody ship is on course !! With full steam up !

 

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY - The Movie !!! Great day on set. It looks SO beautiful. Rami and Lucy as Freddie and Mary are gonna break hearts.

Here's a very well done video speculating parts of the movie based on what we know so far. He pretty much sums up my own thoughts.
