Sacha Baron Cohen Wants To Break Free Of Freddy Mercury Biopic!

With the future Queen having just given birth to the royal baby, there's another Queen that doesn't have a future at all anymore.

That's right, Sacha Baron Cohen has dropped out of the Freddy Mercury biopic film due to creative differences with the living members of the rock group.

Perhaps the Dictator felt a little dictated to after the band members wanted a more PG story about Queen whereas Sacha wanted a more gritty, darker version. The band also failed to approve his choice for a writer and options for potential directors.

Sounds like he was seriously "unddaaah presshaaa" if he had to say "will you let me go" to Queen!

Oh well! Looks like Sacha will have to carry on as if nothing really matters to him. (Cue: wind chime + gong)

    Shame, I would have loved to have seen what Sacha could have done with this.

    Re: Pink Mafia – I agree. I think the remaining members of Queen have really shot themselves in the foot with this. I hear people suggesting Adam Lambert as a replacement but I just don't see it. SBC would have been perfect, imo.

    If you want to write something about it the least thing you could do is his name right. It is Freddie not Freddy.

    Shame on you

    Ya, because what do the members of Queen actually know about Freddy Mercury? Sasha's so full of himself. There's much better actor's out there than him.

    Good for Queen…..Sasha was never a good idea to play Freddy.

    He is an arrogant, overrated actor who's full of himself. Typical jew.

    Re: Mad Dog – Which is so different from an anti-semtic, prejudice ass like you who probably has no idea that most of this industry is Jewish…

    Too bad you don't know how to spell Freddie. You're a vacuous twit Perez.
