Queen Biopic: Barot Bruno Mercury

Fagburn isn't sure whether this sounds like a joke - or too good to be true.
Brian May has told the BBC's HARDtalk Sacha Baron Cohen will play Freddie Mercury in a new film about Queen.
"We have Sacha Baron Cohen, which will probably be a shock to a lot of people, but he's been talking with us for a long time."
Why Baron Cohen? Cause he played gay in Bruno?
Or because of that tache in Borat?
Peter Morgan is writing the screenplay - who ironically is best known for the film 'The Queen', about another old queen, albeit one who's much less popular with the great British public.
Some have already noted the clear dramatic sweep in Freddie Mercury's lifestory.
The film will supposedly end on the high of Queen's appearance at Live Aid - which could mean it will be heavy with dramatic irony.
And at least it can't be any worse than that fucking musical.
