Now that actor Sacha Baron Cohen has pulled out of the role of Freddie Mercury in a movie about the late Queen singer’s life, the writer of the film, Peter Morgan, says it is “probably not going to happen.” This is news to Brian May who says, “He reckons?” May and Roger Taylor, along with Queen manager Jim Beach, are behind the film. Cohen reportedly left over creative differences, with word out of the U.K. saying he wanted to create a gritty, R-rated film that depicted Mercury’s highs and lows, but the surviving members of Queen are more interested in a positive portrayal. Mercury died of AIDS in 1991 at the age of 45.
