Hi, i have heard about the Freddie play in Broadway. I think that there should be a Freddie film. It would go in to detail of his life offstage and the days he was in India & Zanzibar. I think the best actor to play Freddie would be Amil Darvish the actor who plays Freddie in the play and the director could be Rudi Dolezal perhaps that wouldn't be a good director but anyway think of the box office charts and anyway they have made films about Muhammad Ali and Elvis Presley why not Freddie Mercury. Let me know if you agree with me
I think Brian May should be played by Sylvester Stallone. Billy Connolly would make a brilliant John Deacon. Roger could be Nicole Kidman, as she's good box office and a welcome bit of skirt. And all you'd need to do to Dustin Hoffman is stick a 'tache on him and he IS Freddie Mercury.
Nicole's as skinny as Roger used to be (70s Roger that is!) so she would be good. She could blow her curls out...
OR she could dye them black and play Brian. She's tall, skinny and has the nose all right!!
Freddie played by Eric McCormack (Will of Will & Grace a USA sitcom)
Judge for yourself... an extremely talented actor who sings! link
Brian played by either Alan Rickman (older Brian) or Orlando Bloom (younger Brian)
John portrayed by Tim Roth or Paul Mullan (Trainspotting)
Roger played by Jude Law (He's good enough to pull it off.) Besides he has the eyes!
Judge for yourself: link
Has anybody put any thought into what exactly is going to happen in this movie?
I think they should all be former war heroes, struggling to come to terms with their experiences in Nam. They can set up their own 'renegade vigilante' group and build tanks out of old fireplaces. One of them, Brian say, wears oversize chunky gold necklaces and has to have his tea poisoned before he sets foot on a plane. John talks to his glove puppet and gets the group into bother with his zany antics which never become remotely tiresome. Roger will be the babe magnet, with a different piece of skirt every week, usually some gangster's moll who happily gets shot before the end. Of course, Freddie would be team leader, making all the plans whilst smoking a fat cigar and he never has to do any running.
I'd watch it.
