“You have likely copy the saga of the famous Queen-Freddie Mercury biographical film which has been developing in Hollywood for the last seven years,” Beach before-mentioned during a speech at the Artist and Manager Awards this neptad. “An important discovery is that we have now managed to entice Sacha Baron Cohen to write, propagate and straightforward this flick, and he has also agreed to star.”
That’s actually too bad. Also, no one indigence to see a watered-down PG version of Freddie’s world. Freddie lived an R rated life. I hope things can change down the line, cause this sounded like an amazing project.
johnny • on Jul 23, 2013 7:06 am Cohen is dangerous. He will to shock first and talk second. He will over-do the glad thing and make a ridicule of it all and Queen members need to shield there legacy. There are probably 5 to 10 young actors out there who could nail the party emend than sa(as in sack of sht)sha. You can most likely tell the history circularly a gifted artist, powerful music and venues contemporaries…. and intermix in some pathos. PG fabric for me. Or you can do it the Cohen way – bushy! dunny bowl encompass-above, gloom, drudge, stains, crying and extinction…oh aye and perhaps a few bright moments and references to talent.
Ali G's interviews with celebrities (often politicians) gained ill fame partly because the exposed were not privy to the joke that Ali G, rather than being a authentic interviewer, was a comical character played by Baron Cohen. According to Rolling Stone magazine, Baron Cohen would always enter the question area in individuality as Ali G, carrying equipment and appearing to be an insignificant party clause. He would arrival with a please man, whom the interviewee naturally thought was the interviewer. Baron Cohen, as Ali G, would abide down to begin conducting the conference by solicitation the interviewee some prelude questions. The interviewee, however, would last under the impression that the smartly-dressed director would be bearing the conference until short heed antecedent to cameras rolling: this would grant an superiority of surprise, whereby the interviewee would be less likely to opt out of the Ali question previous to its start.
David Miliband, president and CEO of the IRC, added, “Sacha and Isla‘s benefaction is a big expression of belles-letters, and a challenge to do more for the most vulnerable. I trust it is an represent to many others sick practical ways of manufacture a dissimilarity during the Christmas and New Year season.”
Leela • on Jul 23, 2013 10:40 am Adam Lambert can complain like no other – he fronted Queen for 6 concerts and did a fantastic job without impersonating Freddie, just singing the Hades out of their songs. But apart from his 15 donkey’s experience acting in musicals and a commanding stage presence, he’s not an “actor.” A film about Freddie will obviously use Freddie’s vocals, but an actor – a genuine actor – is needed to perfectly impersonate him.
Why do you poverty the R version… the gritty turning…the showy sex, politically correct, shocking death version? The man was a tremendous talent. It may be your fancy to define him by a “gravelly” life (or by his sexuality which was not exclusively gay), but I wish to decide him by the actual aspects of his life and his music talent. And as far as Cohen goes, he may look probable Mercury, but the comparisons end there. That America hating clown is worthy of Mercury’s memory.
