Cohen bites the Dust!

Sacha Baron Cohen or Borat if you prefer has announced today that he is quitting the lead role in the upcoming Queen biopic about lead singer Freddie Mercury due to creative differences with surviving members of the band being Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon.

The three members are producing the biopic on the legendary lead singer and have full script/director approval which is causing conflicts with Cohen.

Word is that the band is looking for a more friendlier movie about Queen while Cohen wanted to portray a darker grittier tale on the history of Freddie. To be fair, Cohen does look like Mercury and has been reported to have a great voice, but turning down this role might be a bad move for him, considering David Fincher and Peter Morgan are also attached to the project, time will tell!
