Bohemian Rhapsody, the Bryan Singer’s Freddie Mercury/Queen biopic has found its bandmates.
Mr. Robot's Rami Malek already is attached to portray legendary frontman Freddie Mercury in the film and is now joined by Joe Mazzello, Ben Hardy and Gwilym Lee who will play John Deacon, Roger Taylor and Brian May respectively.
Deacon, who was known as Deacy, composed several singles for Queen including Top 10 hits ‘You’re My Best Friend’, ‘Another One Bites The Dust’, ‘Back Chat’, and ‘I Want To Break Free’. He was also the band member most involved in the management of the groups finances. Taylor, one of the most influential drummers in rock, also composed at least one track on every album and sang vocals. May, who was the co-founder of Queen with Mercury and Taylor, is one of his generations most accomplished guitarists – building his signature guitar himself.
As for the actors behind the bandmates, Mazzello shot to fame at a young age when he portrayed Tim Murphy in Jurassic Park. He has since gone on to appear in the likes of The Social Network and The Pacific. Hardy was recently seen in X-Men: Apocalypse while Lee has appeared in the TV Series Jamestown.
The production start date is scheduled for this fall. The film is slated for U.S. release on Dec. 25, 2018.
