Rami Malek truly has it!
Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the first official photo of the Mr. Robot star as legendary Queen singer Freddie Mercury in the upcoming biopic Bohemian Rhapsody and judging from the photo, Malek truly has an uncanny appearance to the late singer, who died in 1991 from bronchial pneumonia from AIDS at the age of 45.
Joining Malek as the remaining members of Queen are Gwilym Lee as guitarist Brian May, Ben Hardy as drummer Roger Taylor, and Joseph Mazzarro as bassist John Deacon. Lucy Boynton has recently signed on to play Mercury’s former girlfriend and best friend Mary Austin and Allen Leech to play Paul Prenter, Mercury’s manager who ultimately betrayed the singer.
Bryan Singer is directing the film, which is due for release on Christmas Day in 2018.
