Sacha Baron Cohen is set to star as Freddie Mercury in a movie being made about the legendary lead singer of Queen who died in 1991 after complications from AIDS.

The movie will follow Mercury from the band’s early years to their unforgettable performance at the Live Aid Concert at Wembley Stadium in 1985.

The currently untitled movie will be written by Peter Morgan (“Frost/Nixon”, “The Queen”) and is set to begin filming next year.

GK Films and Tribeca Productions have already secured the rights to some of Queen’s greatest songs including ‘We Are the Champions’, and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.

GK Films Graham King said about Mercury “Freddie Mercury was an awe-inspiring performer, so with Sacha in the starring role couple with Peter’s screenplay and the support of Queen, we have the perfect combination to tell the real story behind their success.”

No release date has been given yet.
