A few weeks ago we got our first look at Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury in the Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody. He cut an impressive singer as the legendary singer, even if he couldn’t quite match the luxuriant chest hair of the real Mercury.
Now director Bryan Singer has shared another shot from the set, adding on Instagram, ‘Couldn’t help myself and had to post this iPhone pic’.
It’s believed the film looks at Queen’s rise to world conquering rockers, ending with the band’s triumphant performance at Live Aid in 1985. Alongside Malek as Mercury will be Ben Hardy as Roger Taylor, Joe Mazello as John Deacon and Gwilym Lee as Brian May. The likes of Mike Myers and Allen Leech will also star, while Aaron McCusker will play Mercury’s boyfriend, Jim Hutton. The film is set for a Christmas 2018 release.
Take a look at the new pics below. [Read more…]
