Entertainment Weekly reports:
Rami Malek is out from behind the computer and rocking the mic with style in the first trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody. In the upcoming Queen biopic, the Mr. Robot star takes on the role of legendary rocker Freddie Mercury. The journey to the big screen hasn’t been an easy one for Bohemian Rhapsody. First, after years of being attached to play Mercury, Sacha Baron Cohen left the project over creative differences. Then, shortly after production was halted due to director Bryan Singer’s “unexpected unavailability,” the filmmaker was fired. Within days, English actor and director Dexter Fletcher (Eddie the Eagle) was tapped as the replacement.
