Will Daniel Radcliffe Play Freddie Mercury?
The much buzzed about Freddie Mercury biopic has reportedly lost Sacha Baren Cohen as its attached star and is seeking to land Daniel Radcliffe as a replacement. Apparently, Sacha decided that Freddie wasn't "flamboyant enough" in the script, and decided to drop out of the project.
Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen, 41, quit the biopic project this summer following clashes over the script with band members Brian May, 66, and Roger Taylor, 64.
But now producers are keen to bag Radcliffe, 24, and are prepared to offer him big money to tempt him to play the gay singer, whose string of hits included camp rock anthem I Want To Break Free.
If he takes the part, Hollywood insiders predict it will be the actor’s biggest pay day since he played Harry Potter in the successful movies.
“Plus, he’s closer in height to Freddie than Sacha, who’s much taller. Daniel can really sing, too.”
Do you think Daniel Radcliffe should play Freddie, Instincters?
