If we want to listen to Freddie sing there are a lot of ways of doing that. I'm assuming the film won't be about the music specifically but rather the stories behind it.
I don't know if I'm explaining it was well as I want, it makes more sense in my head. I think Rami miming to the real Freddie would be sort of off putting though.
I wouldn't expect it to be close, from anyone.
I think you are explaining yourself very well, no worries. I'd just rather hear Freddie's voice for the music, not because it needs promotion or anything, but IMO, it would be silly to have a movie about Freddie's life/music, and not have Freddie's singing to go along with it.
In any case...time will tell. It's hopeful the movie will start filming this year, maybe it will finally, finally move forward.
