/ September 16, 2010

First he was Borat, then Brüno now … Freddie?

Infamous funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen has signed on the play the legendary lead singer of Queen in a new film. According to Deadline the movie, which is being produced by Robert DeNiro’s Tribeca Productions, will focus on the band’s most influential years leading up to their performance at 1985’s Live Aid.

No word yet on whether or not Cohen will be singing himself, but don’t worry, the rights to all of Queen’s most popular songs have been secured. The film will begin production in 2011.
