It was announced today that the controversial and long stuck in development hell Queen biopic has found its remaining two actors to play bassist John Deacon and lead guitarist Bryan May.
Deacon will be played by Jurassic Park
actor Joe Mazzello and May will be played by Gwilym Lee, whose acting credits include Jamestown
and Midsomer Murders
. The two join the previously cast Rami Malek (as Freddie Mercury) and Ben Hardy (as Roger Taylor).
Malek and Mazzello have previously worked together on HBO's The Pacific
(which you should watch if you haven't).
Production on Bohemian Rhapsody
is set to begin this fall and should be released on Christmas Day 2018. The film is being directed and produced by Bryan Singer (also messy) and the script was written by Graham King (also producing), Justin Haythe (Revolutionary Road
), and Jim Beach. These names are different from earlier credits listed on IMDb, so here's hoping the rumored story line
was just a rumor.12I'm pretty whatever about this movie but like....here for this reunion
