Freddie Mercury BioPic parts ways with Dexter Fletcher

Director Dexter Fletcher has walked out on Sony's Freddy Mercury movie, meaning it's back to the drawing board for a project that has already suffered numerous setbacks. Fletcher, who landed the gig after his work on Sunshine on Leith, did not see eye-to-eye with GK Films' Graham King on the direction of the movie, according to Deadline.

Skyfall actor Ben Whishaw is set to play Mercury, but the delay in finding Fletcher's replacement could have wider implications for the production schedule with Whishaw preparing to begin work on the new Bond movie with Sam Mendes.

Whishaw stepped into the role after Sacha Baron Cohen dropped out following a row over the portrayal of the Queen frontman.

 A soft pre-production already began on the movie, though rumours suggest Sony are beginning to waver over the project, which will tell a formative coming-of-age story, culminating in Queen's classic headline set at Live Aid in 1985. It will not cover Mercury's death, of complications from AIDS. Robert De Niro and jane Rosenthal's Tribeca Productions are ultimately at the heart of the project and rights have been secured for Queen's hits Bohemian Rhapsody, We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions, Another One Bites the Dust and You're My Best Friend.

At time of Baron Cohen's exit, it was speculated that surviving Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor had envisioned a family-friendly PG movie, while Cohen was "counting on a gritty R-rated tell all."

Speaking later to Ultimate Guitar, May said: "What led us to that conclusion was the last three movies that he's [Cohen] made - The Dictator, Les Miserables and Hugo - in which he makes outstanding performances, but they're very much Sacha Baron Cohen performances.And we thought there has to be no distraction in the Freddie movie. You have to really suspend that disbelief - the man who plays Freddie, you have to really believe is Freddie. And we didn't that could really happen with Sacha."

Will The Freddie Mercury Biopic Ever Make It To The Big Screen? 4113766 News

Will the Freddie Mercury biopic ever sail into smooth waters and make it onto the big screen? At the moment, it just seems to be one obstacle after another when the project, originally intended for release in 2015, is concerned. The first major disappointment for the project came when funny man actor Sacha Baron Cohen, who is most famous for his alter egos, Ali G and Bruno, dropped out after he had originally been cast as Mercury. Although the project will obviously not be a comedy, Baron Cohen had initially seemed like the perfect candidate to play the role of the legendary Queen frontman.

Baron Cohen and Mercury certainly share an aesthetic resemblance, although the worry seemed to be whether or not the comedic actor would be able summon the gravitas necessary for the role. Roger Taylor, the drummer for Queen, had expressed doubts in the past that Baron Cohen was “too funny”, adding “We felt Sacha probably wasn’t right. We didn’t want it to be a joke. We want people to be moved.” In contrast, Baron Cohen seemed to have wanted the movie to be darker than the other Queen members, who want it to attract a wide audience, had intended.  The creative differences seemed to prove too much to all parties involved, and Baron Cohen parted ways from the others involved with the project. English actor Ben Whishaw has replaced Baron Cohen to play the role of Freddie Mercury in the 2015 biopic.

After all of the issues with Baron Cohen seemed to resolve, Queen fans had hoped that the project would suffer any more setbacks. However, director Dexter Fletcher has also now left the biopic, citing more “creative differences” with Graham King from GK Films. We can’t help but wonder what are all of these creative differences that various people associated with the project keep running into? Perhaps sometimes when a single person or project faces a continuous stream of problems you have to face up to facts that the problem may be closer to home than lying with the other people who have been involved. It sounds like the people behind the Freddie Mercury biopic may need to compromise with others to keep the project still on track and avoid any more setbacks.

Freddie Mercury was the flamboyant and talented lead singer of Queen.  He died from an AIDS related illness in November 1991 just one day after he had publicly announced that he had been suffering with the disease.

Kermit and friends are set to go international with the help of their unfortunately named new tour manager Dominic Badguy, with hopes of selling-out major theatres in all the big cities of the world including Berlin, Madrid and London. As usual though, things are not about to run smoothly for these trouble magnets as they are forced to postpone their tour when Kermit becomes under suspicion for robbery. It's bad luck for him that there's another frog in town - the formidable Constantine, who organises a jewel heist with the knowledge that he may evade capture because of his unwitting doppelganger. Constantine tries to pretend he's Kermit amongst the other Muppets in an effort to evade detection while Kermit gets locked up, but will they realise their mistake in time to release their real friend and finish their tour?

The world-renowned Muppets are back in the hilarious sequel to their 2011 self-titled, Oscar winning movie entitled 'Muppets Most Wanted'.

Wild Bill 2922053 Videos 26th March 2012

Bill, known to his friends as Wild Bill, has just been imprisoned for eight years for drug dealing. Now out on parole, he returns to his flat in a tower block in East London to find his two sons, Dean and Jimmy, living alone. Their mother abandoned them a while ago, so the respective fifteen and eleven year olds have been fending for themselves.

Bill doesn't want to live with his sons - he'd much rather spend a quiet life in Scotland - but the threats of both the social services and Dean willing to tell all about Bill's past forces the reluctant father to stick around, at least, until the social services go away.

It is during this period that Bill develops a bond with Jimmy, who has picked up a nasty habit of swearing a lot. The two get on like a house on fire, unlike Bill's relationship with Dean, which is the opposite. Still, Bill and Jimmy's relationship make the former realise what he has been missing out on while he has been in prison.

Then, Jimmy gets into trouble with some of Bill's old friends. and Bill must decide whether he wants that quiet life in Scotland, or whether he wants to be around for his sons.

Starring: Charlie Creed-Miles, Will Poulter, Leo Gregory, Neil Maskell, Jason Flemyng, Andy Serkis, Olivia Williams, Hardeep Singh Kohli, Iwan Rheon & Jaime Winstone
