Brian May Reveals Details About Freddie Mercury Biopic

Brian May, guitarist for Queen, has revealed on his website several details regarding the upcoming biopic on the band's deceased frontman, Freddy Mercury. One major reveal was the confirmation of the lead role:

"The pieces are all falling into place, though we are now on a slightly later schedule - filming is now scheduled to start in the Spring, with Sacha Baron Cohen playing Freddie."

He added that the film is still a ways of from getting its theatrical release:

"The film should be ready for release early in 2014. We did make some other plans, but they will have to stay under wraps for now. Being in Queen is - bizarrely - as full of surprising twists and turns as ever - 40 years since we first got together, and 20 years after losing Freddie. But of course Freddie is in so many ways very much alive. He must be wryly smiling somewhere!!!"
