Michael Sheen & Johnny Depp Are Favorites To Land Freddie Mercury Role
Earlier this month, Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen pulled out of the Freddie Mercury biopic because of creative differences with the remaining members of Queen. Cohen, who had been attached to the project for some time, wanted a more graphic depiction of the rocker's life that would delve into his sexuality. The remaining members of Queen wanted a more family friendly project that would stay away from the controversial aspects of Mercury's life.
