Rami Malek is already aboard, ready to prove his pipes to play Freddie Mercury. But Bryan Singer and his team have now locked in the people to play the rest of Queen in Bohemian Rhapsody. Ben Hardy, Joe Mazello and Gwilym Lee are the chosen trio.

Singer is gearing up to start filming in the autumn, with Justin Haythe providing the script for the film, which will document the rise of Mercury and his band mates, with the real-life Brian May and Roger Taylor involved as producers and music overseers.

Hardy is set as Taylor, the band's drummer while Lee is playing lead guitarist May. Mazello, meanwhile, is bass master John Deacon.

This marks a real step forward for a film - spearheaded by producer Graham King – that has seen a few false starts in its time. Sacha Baron Cohen was attached to play the lead for Sony, but the movie is now set up at Fox with Singer in the director's chair. It'll feature some of the band's biggest hits and should be out in cinemas around Christmas 2018.
