I gotta be honest, my interest in this has really nosedived since Cohen left. I didn't even think that would be the case, but it has. I feel like it would've been a far more interesting production with him involved.

I feel the opposite: I just think he would have been Sacha Baron Cohen playing Freddie instead of an actor who really embodied Freddie - I just do not think he would have been believable; and I get the feeling he would not have been as respectful as I would like.

My issues are more with the script and how it is going to be directed. If the story is going to be as shallow as a puddle and over-sanitised (which I suspect it will) then I think it will be a major fail.

I have a mixture of excitement and fear regarding this whole project.

Bryan Singer projects:
Usual Suspects - Low budget crime noir brilliance.
X Men, more X Men, and even more X Men, mega-successful, mega-loved mega-franchise.
House - Biggest network tv show for several years, turned "some guy" from Blackadder in to the highest paid actor on TV.

Jack the Giant Slayer - Heaven's Gate style gargantuan flop.

I'm sure he'll do an amazing job. Don't worry. Let's just hope he sees a good therapist for the Jack the Career Slayer fiasco.

That Adam quote is from December so I'm sure he was talking about the tour they announced in January.
