FREDDIE MERCURY's Life Story Is Being Turned Into A Hollywood Film

PR-inside.com reports that Freddie Mercury's life story is being turned into a Hollywood film.

The legendary QUEEN frontman — famous for such hits as "We Are The Champions" and "Bohemian Rhapsody" — tragically died of AIDS in 1991 and now his former bandmate Brian May has revealed a biopic about his troubled life is on the way.

The guitarist told Britain's Daily Express newspaper: "There is a film in the pipeline and we're all involved in it. I'm not allowed to say much about it and casting isn't finalised but we've had some incredible offers to play Freddie. Really incredible."

May has also lifted the lid on his next project, a new album with QUEEN drummer Roger Taylor. It will be the first QUEEN record of new material since Mercury's untimely death.

May said "It's going really well. Is there a track which will be a tribute to Freddie? Well, we're just writing what we want at the moment but it's all a tribute to Freddie. I mean, without him, we wouldn't be here."

The rock band's back catalogue is already the inspiration for long-running West End musical "We Will Rock You" and recently a TV documentary, "Freddie Mercury: A Kind Of Magic", was aired to commemorate what would have been the singer's 60th birthday.
