Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor will serve as executive producers on the film that focuses on the life of Freddie Mercury, with Mr. Robot star Rami Malek set to portray the iconic singer.

The long-in-the-works Queen biopic is "finally happening", according to a new post on the band's official website.

Also, the movie will be directed by Bryan Singer, whose previous credits include The Usual Suspects and a whole bunch of X-Men movies.

"This will be the place to come to stay ahead of all the very latest news and updates as the film gets underway - and hopefully we'll have some regular insider information to share with you too".

The film is scheduled for release some time next year.

In addition, the band described Singer as "a flawless choice to recreate the fabulous Queen years which brought us such unforgettable moments as Live Aid, which we can reveal will be faithfully recreated for a key sequence the film".

Still, it's a Queen biopic and seeing Rami Malek, one of the most talented actors working today, playing Freddie Mercury is going to be special.

"After months of speculation, QOL can also confirm that the film is now "as-close-as-that" to start of shooting". At this stage you probably know him best for TV's Mr Robot. Pre-production begins next week in the United Kingdom to prepare for start of principal photography in around London as soon as mid-September. In Baron Cohen's case, he left the project when he clashed with Brian May and Roger Taylor - who are producing the film - over the general thesis of the film. Essentially, May and Taylor believed the story should continue on, like the band did, after Mercury's death whereas Baron Cohen believed it ended with Mercury's death.

One more thing: You can be in the film!
