Sacha Baron Cohen starring in Freddie Mercury Biopic was a Joke

Brian May of Queen has posted on his website that news of Sacha Baron Cohen writing, producing and starring in the Freddie Mercury biopic was all a joke from Queen’s band manager Jim Beach.

From EW:

It appears we might have gotten excited over nothing—Queen guitarist Brian May posted on his website that the band’s manager Jim Beach was just throwing in “a small joke” when he claimed that Sacha Baron Cohen had officially signed on to the long-delayed project. Cohen’s rep has not returned our request for comment.
