Queen Biopic Casts Freddie’s Bandmates

Gwilym Lee (“Jamestown”) is Brian May, Ben Hardy (“X-Men: Apocalypse”) is Roger Taylor and Joe Mazzello (“The Social Network”) is John Deacon in the upcoming Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody”.

QueenOnline.com broke the casting news, saying the trio will join the already cast Rami Malek (“Mr. Robot”) as Freddie Mercury in the Bryan Singer-directed film at 20th Century Fox.

Anthony McCarten penned the most recent draft of the screenplay for the film which May, Taylor, Robert De Niro and Graham King will produce. Filming is slated to begin shortly ahead of a Christmas 2018 release.
