Anyone else hear about this? I caught some radio guy at the last minute talking about it. He said Johnny Depp would be the star as lead singer Freddie Mercury. If its true it sounds cool to me. Queen is an amazing band. Except for that new singer. 'gags'
#3
yeah i'd probly go to see it.
would it be about just freddie or the whole band?

Depp as anybody is cool. He is the definition.

To quote Brian May, Queen's lead guitarist:

Yes, I saw this ...

The truth is ...

Discussions are at an early stage .... I don't know where this story came from, but I think someone in the media, as usual, has taken a punt ... of course these opportunists have little to lose ... who cares about truth these days? Certainly not the tabloid press.

But you're right about one thing ... Johnny Depp is fantastic. He would be a worthy counterpart for Freddie on screen. I don't think I can say any more right now.

True. Johnny Depp has pwned pretty hard in every movie I have seen with him in it. I really don't care much for Queen, but if it were made then I would watch it. Paul Rodgers is a pretty good singer he just doesn't really fit in with Queens music.

I like Depp a lot, and not just for his amazing Jack Sparrow character. I also liked his Willy Wonka, his Mort Rainey in Secret Window, and his Edward Scissorhands.

Now, despite all this, I don't think he could do Freddie, unless there was no singing in the movie, since the only person who can possible range in with Freddie vocally is Justin Hawkins.

he fits the role..




So, if we were to make a movie about Elvis or Jimi Hendrix, everybody who was straight would be a perfect candidate for the role?

I'd hate to see those auditions.

I know it's fairly off topic, but I'd love to see a movie on Jimi Hendrix.

Sorry, was thinking about that the other day.
