Beyonce To Star In Queen Film

GRAMMY-winning beauty BEYONCE KNOWLES is in talks to star in the movie version of London QUEEN musical WE WILL ROCK YOU.

The BABY BOY popstar sings the famous Queen song with PINK and BRITNEY SPEARS in the latest PEPSI commercial and visited the West End's DOMINION THEATRE, which hosts the hit show, for the launch of the promo last month (26JAN04).

Despite snubbing Queen rocker BRIAN MAY's invitation to the performance for partying with her advert co-stars, Beyonce is keen to bring the story from the stage to the cinemas.

Beyonce is hoping the lead role of KILLER QUEEN could win her an OSCAR, as CATHERINE ZETA-JONES' all-singing, all-dancing performance as VELMA KELLY in CHICAGO did last year (03).

Production on the film is set to begin in early 2005.

Beyonce has previously starred in AUSTIN POWERS IN GOLDMEMBER and THE FIGHTING TEMPTATIONS.
