The long-gestating Freddie Mercury biopic has seen plenty of talent come and go over the years. Sacha Baron Cohen spent a good amount of time developing a hard-R, warts-and-all biopic that ultimately led to creative disagreements between him and Queen guitarist Brian May, who even rejected the idea of David Fincher directing the biopic. Now, it looks like the project has may have nailed down Mr. Robot star Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, and Bryan Singer (X-Men: Apocalypse) may be directing.
