His Del Close biopic may have fallen apart, but it seems that Mike Myers will still be returning to the big screen, with Deadline reporting that the Wayne’s World and Austin Powers star is in talks to join Bryan Singer’s Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.
Myers is of course already very familiar with the tune, thanks to the classic scene from Wayne’s World…

Look, it's the first image of Rami Malek as the iconic Freddie Mercury in the movie Bohemian Rhapsody. The film will be directed by Bryan Singer, who is stepping away from the mutants for once, unless you count Freddie Mercury's mutant lungs / range (four octaves -heeeyyy) which maybe you should. What'cha think?
It's quite a fine image, really. Rami's unique facial structure really plays up the Freddieness once you add that moustache. For what it's worth we are promised that this will not be a traditional biopic (it covers only the formation of the band in 1970 through their Live-Aid performance in 1985). There have been murmurs that the project might not do justice to Freddie's story, or his sexuality, because the surviving members of Queen are totally involved. That's always tricky with true stories when the actual people are involved in telling it.
With deep apologies to Queen, I'm now »

Speaking to the outlet, Malek revealed that the singing in the movie will be created using a nomination of Malek’s own voice, original recordings of Freddie Mercury, and a soundalike: “We’re going to use Freddie as much as possible and use myself as much as possible. I’m in Abbey Road [Studios] right now if that should say anything to you. I’m not working on my acting.”

There’s been a lot of controversy and chatter around the long-developing “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Sacha Baron Cohen famously laid bare his reasons for exiting the project that would’ve seen him playing Freddie Mercury, the iconic lead singer of Queen. The actor said that the screenplay he looked at killed off the artist midway through the movie, and focused on how the rest of the band moved on without him. There’s been chatter that the movie will sanitize Mercury’s hard partying ways, but that remains to be seen.
