In a post on his official website
, Brian May
has revealed that 2014 is shaping up to be a busy year for Queen
:"It looks like it will be a very busy year for us. We seem to be still hovering on the button as I write, ready to start the engine rolling on the Freddie film. It's been a long haul as you know, trying to assemble the right team to make the film. And I have learned, in my short time in the movie world, that availability is everything. It's no use assembling a team whose members are not all available at the same time!"There are windows of opportunity, when everyone you need is free, but the windows can close unexpectedly, and it's back to the drawing board! But the line-up is looking very exciting ... I think just the announcement will cause a bit of a sensation!"
As well as talking about the Freddie Mercury biopic, May revealed that he and Roger Taylor
are looking at taking Queen out on the road again. There is no word yet on who else will join them:"We've also been looking at doing some dates - Roger and myself, and who knows who else! Ha ha! Of course these days nothing is a secret for more than the 5 minutes it takes for Twitter and Facebook to spread rumours. But today
[15 Jan] I saw an amazing working list of dates, and ... well, I think we're up for one more swing out there. In fact, in our Queen meeting today, we drank on it!"
