Queen's Brian May says the Freddie Mercury bio-pic is on course, though filming has been delayed, which will push its release to 2014.

May, Roger Taylor and their manager Jim Beach recently sat down to go over what is next, and May writes on his website, "The pieces are all falling into place, though we are now on a slightly later schedule -- filming is now scheduled to start in the spring, with Sacha Baron Cohen playing Freddie. The film should be ready for release early in 2014. We did make some other plans, but they will have to stay under wraps for now."

May will be back on the road next month in the U.K. on an acoustic tour with singer Kerry Ellis.
