Freddie Mercury Biopic To Go Into Production

freddie mercuryFreddie Mercury is a legend. We all know it; always have, and probably always will.

For years, a biopic about the icon has been in the works, and has apparently found new life. Sony has brought on Oscar nominated Anthony McCarten (The Theory Of Everything) to write the script, according to The Tracking Board.

Sascha Baron Cohen will no longer be playing Mercury, and Sony quickly scooped up Ben Whishaw (Spectre, Cloud Atlas), who is still on board to play the Queen frontman, alongside Johnny Flynn as Roger Taylor and Gemma Arterton as Mary Austin, Mercury’s longtime partner.

Production is set to begin in June of next year.
