Should there really be a new song, it will be written by Brian and Roger to remember/celebrate Freddie/ their time together as Queen. Can‘t be too bad in my opinion ( and I know, some of you don’t share that.)

Why did you bring the rumour to here then? People have things to say about this film, pro, con, in between...it certainly has people talking.
I don't know if this biopic will focus on more of Freddie or Queen. Can't have one without the other. I'd rather it be more focused on Freddie...as I feel his story deserves to be told, and by Gosh I hope they do Freddie justice with this.
If there's a new song, I feel like Brian's and Roger's best days of songwriting aren't what it used to be. Why not work on a song from the vaults, person I would find that more interesting than a new song.
That pic is odd. It doesn't look like Freddie to me.

No problem in discussing the rumor as that. The discussion wasn’t about that lately though.

It has been reported he was cast as an extra in the film though. Freddie, Queen and AL are always gonna have strong emotions especially when it goes together.

Yes. But calling for glamberts to „step in“ is in my eyes completely silly. I haven’t seen anyone here promoting Adam for that film. And personally, I wouldn’t care, if he wasn’t in it.

I saw the picture of Adam in the costume and wouldn’t think much of it. I bet, if people here would not make a fuss about it, most of you won‘t even recognize him. Even I had to look twice. Intruly believe, if this gets in, its a very small cameo. Maybe as a fan at a concert. I can’t see anything else in that. Adam knows, he is not Queen and has nothing to do with their story.
Just don’t rate the film, before we know, what it’s even about...

That erm costume...not very AL was it? That's the point, perhaps. :lol:
I'm going to be honest, I don't want him involved in this film at all. I don't see a need to possibly even including him. Not even as an extra. I definitely do not want to hear him as a part of the soundtrack, alongside Queen's and Freddie's music.

The point of the costume is to play a (cameo) role.
As for the maybe new song: A film needs a new song, if it wants to have a chance to win for instance an Oscar. And I‘m sure, the producers want a chance there. I don’t believe, there is enough raw recorded material to release a new song with Freddie. I think that’s the reason, why the producers won’t simply take an old Queen-song. As fitting as some songs would be.

Meh to the Oscars. That's not my hope for the film. Doing Freddie Justice is more important for me.
I don't know what's left in the vaults, many incomplete and unfinished/unreleased songs maybe from Queen at their prime? That would be better than anything new Brian and Roger could do these days? That would get my interest up even more than Brian and Roger doing a new song.

Yes. A few months ago in this thread. It was from Bryan Singer‘s instagram account.

Think he was wear the trucker hat and a flannel, possibly plaid shirt? Dunno if it's still up on Bryan's Instagram.

Great find. :)

He looks wonderful to me. Of course, no actor on earth is going to nail Freddie's look exactly - Freddie was a unique looking human being, but Rami is close enough for me. And not only does he look good enough he also is respectful about Freddie and Queen and seems like a thoroughly nice and well-mannered gentleman. Good luck to him!
