May revealed that the first draft of the Freddy Mercury script has been handed in by Peter Morgan and revealed that star Sacha Baron Cohen cannot wait to get started on the project…

“Work is now fully under way for the much-vaunted feature film on the life of Freddie. Peter Morgan has delivered a first draft of the movie, which everyone is very excited about, and Sacha Baron Cohen is chomping at the bit to get into the role, in a way which certainly would delight Freddie! The whole team [are] now working on preparing for a shoot later this year, and a release in the late autumn of 2012.”

The Freddy Mercury biopic will chart the rise to fame of the Queen frontman, not his ill-fated battle with AIDS.
