The long-in development biopic about seminal British rock band Queen, BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY is being eyed to start production in and around London in mid-September. Bryan Singer will direct with Mr. Robot star Rami Malek playing legendary frontman Freddie Mercury. Pre-production begins this week in the UK.

Graham King is producing via his GK Films for 20th Century FOX and New Regency. The project has been in-development for nine years and the most recent script comes from Theory of Everything writer Anthony McCarten.

Previously plans were to have the project at Sony with Sacha Baron Cohen as Mercury and Peter Morgan writing, before creative differences happen and plans fell through. Later Ben Whishaw was set to star with Dexter Fletcher directing, but once again it didn’t happen.

Bohemian Rhapsody is set for a December 25, 2018 release date.
