Queen biopic: first picture of Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury

Filming is now well underway on Bryan Singer’s upcoming biopic of Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody. What’s more, we’ve got the first look at Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury in the movie. Said picture is the one at the top of this article.

The film is set to mix in three different singing voices to get the role of Mercury right. Recordings of Mercury himself are to be used, and Malek will also be taking on some of the singing. Then, a soundalike is also on hand to bridge any gaps.

As Malek told EW, “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”.
