Will this movie EVER actually happen??
The UK Telegraph recently reported that Ben Wishaw has stated that the biopic may be on hold.
Here is the article by Tim Walker of the telegraph.co.uk.
It is getting on for a year since Brian May, the guitarist with the pop group Queen, told me that Ben Whishaw had the part of Freddie Mercury in the bag for the much talked about film of his life.
So when will Whishaw actually set about the business of rocking us? “Actually, I don’t know what’s happening, it seems to be on the back-burner,” the Paddington star now admits in an interview with Time Out London. “It was going, then there were problems getting the script working.”
May told me last November: “We’ve been talking to Ben and we’re very keen and last time we spoke he was very keen. Casting Freddie is hard. It’s a lot of things we need, but we need to get his essence.”
Sacha Baron Cohen had earlier been touted for the role.
