Freddie Mercury Film In Trouble

It seemed to be quite a divisive decision to cast Sacha Baron Cohen as Freddie Mercury, but personally speaking I thought it was genius and was really looking forward to seeing it. Alas, that ain't happening now. It's all in the link below, but the short hand version is that Cohen has walked away because bloody Brian May and Roger Taylor have final say on most things to do with the film and...they want to make it a PG Movie!! Yep - the life of one of the most debauched rock stars who ever lived is going to become a Disney film for all the family! Talk about rewriting history. I'd almost like to think May and Taylor are protecting Freddie's memory, but realistically - and judging by all their other decision -it's probably so that more people can see the film and therefore their back catalogue will get a bigger sales bump.

Bloody shame, as a warts and all biopic of Freddie's life would have been fascinating.

Stanley Kubrick was hired to fake the moon landing, but due to his perfectionism he made them film it on location. On the moon.
