The long gestating movie about Queen seems to be one step closer to reality, with reports suggesting that director Stephen Frears (‘Dangerous Liasons,’ ‘High Fidelity,’ ‘the Grifters,’ ‘The Queen’) is in the running to helm the project.
Film producer Graham King says he’s still planning on filming a biopic about Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in 2012, and Sacha Baron Cohen is still planning on playing the lead role. It’d be a rare serious role for Cohen, best known for starring in films like ‘Borat (2006)’ and ‘Bruno (2009).’
Queen‘s Brian May and Roger Taylor have revealed they’re in possession of recordings of late vocalist Freddie Mercury singing with Michael Jackson. British newspaper The Sun reports that the public may finally get a chance to hear the two men harmonize.
To commemorate what would have been Queen singer Freddie Mercury’s 65th birthday this weekend, Google published a Mercury-ized doodle on their homepage, along with an accompanying animated video. The clip imagines the late star (who passed away in 1991 due to AIDS complications), cavorting through a heavenscape packed with 8-bit objects and some of his most iconic outfits.
