Brian May says, "I'm thrilled with the way our Freddie [Mercury] film is shaping up. Much more than a documentary of someone's life, it's a piece of pure art, chiseled out of solid rock. It speaks of families and relationships and hopes and dreams, and heartache and disappointment, and ultimately of victory and fulfillment, in a way that everyone can connect to. It hasn't been an easy journey -- but all the most worthwhile journeys are like that!"
And producer Graham King adds, "I’ve been lucky enough in my career to work with some of the greatest actors -- Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, just to name a few. But the performance of Rami Malek as Freddie rates up there with some of the best I’ve ever seen.”
The movie will hit theaters on November 2nd.
Mercury died on November 24th, 1991 from AIDS at age 45.
