Please, link hands and join me in prayer:
Dear God of Airbrushing, in the name of Mimi thy most anointed disciple, I beseech thee oh Lord to deliver young Rami Malek, a fine, strong actor, a talented performer whose only crime was to forsake all good judgment to embrace the bio pic that wasn’t, Lord, he was led astray by Queen and taken into the darkness of a movie about Freddie Mercury that lo is not actually about Freddie but is on some other shit, oh Father forgive those who hath airbrushed and photoshopped young Rami to within an inch of his life, creating a shiny CGI looking false profit of the most revered and great Freddie in the name of the Father and The Holy Spirit I pray for his deliverance. Amen.
Okay, here he is.
The Queen Biopic Bohemian Rhapsody we’ve been hearing about since 2010 is finally happening. The band Queen announced that the film will finally go into production and will star Mr. Robot’s Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury. Probable sleazeball Bryan Singer (various X-Mensises, The Usual Suspects) will direct.
The bug-eyed-and-sexy Emmy winner Rami Malek (aka “Mr. Robot”) is set to play Queen’s flamingly wonderful lead singer, Freddie Mercury, in the long-awaited biopic called Bohemian Rhapsody.
Variety reports that everyone’s favorite delusional television “hacktivist” (apologies for using that ridiculous word, but my grammar checker inferred that I was boring when I tried to use “hacker“) will be helmed by (the alleged sketchball) X-Men franchise director Bryan Singer. Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor will serve as music producers on the film (and hopefully get back in these outfits for inspiration).
