According to Deadline, British actor Ben Whishaw — best known for his role as Q in the most recent Bond flick, Skyfall — will play Mercury in the upcoming biopic.
After 30 years, music fans hoping to hear the long-awaited duets of Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson will finally get their chance.
The actor has since dropped out of the biopic due to “creative differences” with the surviving members of Queen.
Adam Lambert says that he has been chosen as the replacement for Freddie Mercury as the lead singer for Queen!!
