This movie has apparently been in the works for a while - Starring Mr. Robot actor, Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury... he does look quite convincing, am I right? He looks SO much like him, it's eerie. What's really bizarre is that he was not the original actor cast in this role... Sacha Baron Cohen was initially tapped to play Mercury, but ended up leaving due to creative differences.
Here's the synopsis of the film from Metal Injection:
Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as Mercury’s lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that were always more like a family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.
