For a long time Sacha Baron Cohen was attached to play Mercury, but that version fell apart in 2013, due in part to friction between the actor and the surviving members of Queen; a subsequent attempt, with Ben Whishaw attached, never got off the ground either. Now, the Queen film is officially on.

Sacha Baron Cohen would have been great, but I'm sure Rami can pull it off too

Looks good to me, but I know nothing about Freddie other than his iconic pose.

Rami looks amazing... but if Bryan Singer is attached to this project... its gonna be shit. He'll change everything about Queen to make his own distorted drugged out vision come to life. Gawd, I hate that guy. Really wanted to see this movie... now, that i know he's involved... I may pass.

Bryan Singer Fired From Directing Queen Biopic After On-Set Chaos
The growing tension led to a confrontation between Singer and Malek, which, while it did not become physical between the two did involve Singer throwing an object. Subsequently, however, the two are said to have settled their differences and filming was expected to resume.
But then Singer did not return to the set after the Thanksgiving break and is believed to have been in the U.S. for about the last ten days, according to one source. In his absence, Sigel stepped in to helm several days of shooting before the production was shut down. Singer's prolonged absence was the final straw, and so the studio decided to terminate him under his pay-or-play contract.
According to another insider, Singer has claimed he is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder because of the tensions on the set.

Something smells fishy about all of this. I am sure more will be coming out. Is the film doomed now?

I hope that POS Bryan Singer never works in Hollywood again. Just can not stand that guy.
