The film is due for release next year, and it will be directed by Bryan Singer, who previously worked on the X-Men series. Rami Malek will play Queen’s iconic frontman Mercury.

“Rami has great presence and he’s utterly dedicated to the project,” Roger Taylor and Brian May said in a statement. “He’s completely living and breathing Freddie already, which is wonderful.”
