The previously reported film about the life of Freddie Mercury starring Sacha Baron Cohen in the lead role is now at the writing stage, according to Queen guitarist Brian May.

Speaking to Queen’s official website, May said of the project: “Peter Morgan has delivered a first draft of the movie, which everyone is very excited about, and Sacha Baron Cohen is chomping at the bit to get into the role in a way which certainly would delight Freddie! The whole team are now working on preparing for a shoot later this year, and a release in the late autumn of 2012”.
