More than 30 years ago, Michael Jackson and Queen started recording a song together called "There Must Be More to Life Than This". They never finished it, and Freddie Mercury ended up recording a version on his own for his 1985 solo album "Mr. Bad Guy".
Brian May says he's often thought of the way Freddie Mercury handled his final illness when dealing with the aftermath of the Queen guitarist's own health scare. Mercury died in 1991 from complications relating to the AIDS virus.
After months of delays, word is now circulating that Dexter Fletcher has been tapped to direct the Freddie Mercury biopic. Perhaps more importantly, Ben Whishaw will play Freddie Mercury, replacing Sacha Baron Cohen, who left over the summer.
Earlier this summer, Sacha Baron Cohen dropped out of the long-gestating Freddie Mercury biopic due to disagreements with the remaining Queen band members over the content and tone of the film, but now it looks like his replacement may have been found. 'Captain America' star Dominic Cooper is rumored as the latest actor looking to step into Mercury's unitard.
Following Sacha Baron Cohen's departure from the lead role in the Freddie Mercury biopic, the film's writer Peter Morgan was unconvinced the project would ever happen, but perhaps it can survive after all with a bit of magic. According to a report, Daniel Radcliffe is the next in line for the gig.
Last year, Rovio paid tribute to Freddie Mercury by creating a video featuring one of their Angry Birds characters as the Queen frontman as part of the annual "Freddie for a Day" celebration. Now, they have taken their love for him one step further and integrated him into this week's installment of Angry Birds Friends.
