Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury for biopic Bohemian Rhapsody
Hey there guys,
If you've been following up any of the recent Telltale Talk threads, you know I've been bombarding everyone with recent news on the new Queen film. This is my way of shutting up about it for good and sharing my final thoughts about it here, until the trailer or film release. If you didn't already know this project was in the works for quite some time, mostly being delayed for the casting choice of Freddie. Some actors that were being considered were Dominic Cooper (The Devil's Double), Ben Whishaw (Skyfall, Spectre) and Daniel Radcliffe. The originally intended actor for the role was going to be played by Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat), but he dropped out due to creative differences with Brian May. Rami Malek a few days ago had recently posted a tweet saying he would post pictures of himself as Freddie on his Twitter handle, Brian May posted it first on his Instagram. May also has the pictures of the Live Aid recreation set being used for the pinnacle final scene. I've been a fan of Rami Malek for quite some time ever since Mr. Robot and Until Dawn put him on the map, so naturally I'd be really excited to see how he handles Freddie's personal introvert side of his personality. I honestly have no clue how much of Freddie's mannerisms he's learned from the concert, but if he's mastered every other beat of his motion, I think he will do a fantastic job in the role. I highly doubt he would of had to have been choreographed his movements in that much detail, but I know some die hard fans would want it to be like that or nothing. Anywho I've got the photo's here below, please tell me what you guys think about the project, and if you guys want to learn more about it here's the IMDB link to the trivial portion for the film http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1727824/trivia?ref_=tt_trv_trv
