At the end of 2018, the film Bohemian Rhapsody (Bohemian Rhapsody) will be released worldwide - a biography about the legendary Queen lead singer. It seems there is nothing to add. Further in the text we will consider all the important information about the project, known to this time. Don’t stop us now!
Sasha Baron Cohen as Freddie Mercury
Sasha Baron Cohen, a famous comedian who literally cannot live without provoking his ambiguous behavior, was carrying on a project about an outstanding British singer who became an icon of style for his generation and many who followed him. Freddie Mercury was born in the Stone City in Zanzibar and was of Parsi origin, while the performer of the role of Borat himself comes from a Jewish family. But both are true Englishmen!
Perhaps this fact made both of them a little more than the future Ali Ji could have imagined. And if he is inspired by the lead singer of the Queen group, then it’s scary to think what exactly Freddie Mercury really did. One day, Sasha Baron Cohen admitted that he was almost shocked by the story of how far-off the tartiness was Farrukh Bulsara in real life. She thinks she’s just crazy to insanity. For example, the fact that at a party arranged by the main “Queen” in honor of some event, dwarfs walked, with heads on which were plates covered with cocaine, it is quite natural. For Freddie. And for Cohen, probably, too. Well, how could Sasha get past this?
But, carrying the project for at least 3 years - and this is only official - Sasha Baron Cohen was eventually forced to leave it. It would be a phenomenal spectacle, which has no analogues and no. And it is unlikely to be sometime. After a while, the British actor admitted that the remaining members of the musical group, who had survived by that time, were the reason for his refusal to play the role of Freddie Mercury. According to him, someone alone was very, very strange.In the sense that the man suggested that the final third of the film be devoted to the fact that the group copes with the sudden loss of its leader. Read the breadwinner! Sasha did not lose his head and immediately issued: no one will watch this!
The narrative style of the cult Tarantinovian "Pulp Fiction" for "Bohemian Rhapsody" is by no means appropriate. Despite the fact that the musicians wanted to assign the legacy of Freddie Mercury to themselves, which remained after his death, Sasha Baron Cohen stayed away from all this disgrace. Despite all its outrageousness. In addition, they did want the biopic about the “Freaky Peasant” to have a “childish” rating of PG-13. And it certainly did not fit into the plans of the person who once played a character named Bruno.
If Sasha Baron Cohen and shocking, then it helps him in his endeavors fairly. If he takes on a new project, he enters the image right away and does not leave it until the film’s premiere. Any tape with his participation, even if the Brothers from Grimsby, is, without exaggeration, an event. For fans of his work. On and get together.
Bohemian Rhapsody biopic could be done at different stages of production: David Fincher, Tom Hooper, Stephen Frears and Dexter Fletcher.
Imagine, what would be the biopic about the legendary musician, produced by David Fincher, who made an intense “Social Network” about the creator of Facebook social network Mark Zuckerberg, perhaps, but this, alas, is already a dream. As, by the way, they can be called a communion to the project of Tom Hooper, the author of the musical "Les Miserable" and two biographical paintings, noted in his time on the Oscar: "The King Says!" And "Girl from Denmark".
The author of the “Queen” with Helen Mirren in the lead role, Stephen Frears could have removed the biographical tape about another cult personality of Britain, but could not do it for reasons that were not disclosed. But Dexter Fletcher - this is the gangster Soap from the cult crime comedy Guy Ritchie "Cards, money, two trunks." About him, you can also say that not so long ago, many people remembered his “Eddie“ Eagle ””, by the way, also a biopic, only about a total loser.
To date, the director's chair for the project is Brian Singer, the author of X-Men.
We are not focusing your attention on this, but simply pointing out this fact: both he and Freddie are representatives of the LGBT community. As it is. And this we say to thatthat the author of “Suspicious Persons” will finally be given full say in this regard. But still do not bend here. Still, the Queen’s leader is not famous for this.
The Bohemian Rhapsody script is rumored to be handled by Anthony McCarten along with Peter Morgan, Stephen J. Rivel and Christopher Wilkinson.
True, it is worth noting that, according to insiders, it was originally Peter Morgan, the author of the dramas "Queen", "Race", "Frost vs. Nixon", "Damned United", "The Last King of Scotland" and "Another Boleyn family" , wrote the script independently, and his working title was: “Freddie Mercury”. He is also involved in the sports drama, which is scheduled for release in 2018, Thrilla in Manila, which will give away all the secrets about the famous duel of two boxers: Mohammed Ali and Joe Frazier.
Anthony McCarten, an Oscar nominee for a biopic about the English theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking's Universe, had previously had the opportunity to make his novel The Death of a Superhero Emotionally. Note that in early 2018, a biographical film will be released about Winston Churchill, an outstanding British politician, “Tough Time”, in the development of which the New Zealand writer and screenwriter was directly involved.
Stephen J.Rivel was previously nominated for an Oscar for Oliver Stone's Nixon with Anthony Hopkins in the lead role, which, by the way, was his debut, after which he made for Michael Mann “Ali”, where Will Smith showed the world through the eyes of the greatest boxer in stories.
He also wrote biographical dramas "Rewriting Beethoven" and "Sacrificing a Pawn." In 2018, the musical “The Star was Born” will be released, the directorial debut of Bradley Cooper, to the production of which Stephen J. Rivel also put his hand.
Christopher Wilkinson helped him with all these projects. Therefore, as you can see, their duet has so far shown itself exclusively from a good side.
Let's say a little about the actors of the upcoming project. The main role in the “Bohemian Rhapsody” was given to Rami Malek, who plays the leading role in the TV series of hackers “Mr. Robot”.
After Sasha Baron Cohen abandoned the image of Freddie Mercury in the vision of the surviving remaining “Queens”, the empty seat was occupied by Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), then Dominic Cooper (“The Double of the Devil”, “Preacher” and Lleyn Rinn of "Warcraft"), then Ben Wishaw ("Perfume" and Q from "James Bond", the fact that with Daniel Craig).
In addition to Rami Malek, who is preparing to be reincarnated as Queen’s frontman, there are names in the cast of the project: Joseph Maczello, Ben Hardy, Gwilim Lee and Allen Leech. So far, only they have been approved.
But we still put in our own “five kopecks”: it’s hard to think of a better candidate for the role of Freddie than Sasha Baron Cohen. It seems so to us. And you?
The plot of "Bohemian raspodii" by this time is unknown. Now it’s hard to say what the scriptwriters finally came to, who received attitudes from Queen members who wanted, according to them, to convey all the pain they experienced after the premature death of their vocalist. I want to believe that in the end we will still be shown the world in which Freddie Mercury lived in all its glory. B *** stvo, debauchery, drugs are all affairs. Well, how else? "The Wolf of Wall Street" has long proved that this kind of films are perceived by a wide audience with a bang! True, it was directed by Martin Scorsese. We will see.
Movie release date
The release date of the film “Bohemian Rhapsody” in the Russian rental has so far been established on January 31, 2019.
The world premiere of the project will be held December 25, 2018 in the United States. In America, this day celebrate Christmas, if that.In Russia at this time it will be possible to visit the cinema for the sake of watching Aquamen.
In conclusion, we add that among the producers of the film Bohemian Rhapsody, - so named, by the way, after the name of the famous Queen song, - is Robert De Niro. So we will see if the Taxi Driver lost his former fervor. You talkin ’to me? And Brian May and Roger Taylor, judging by everything, without John Deacon, will show for a couple how relevant the expression “Queen Forever” is now. In any case, and in any case: The Show Must Go On! So bequeathed to us by Freddie Mercury personally.
