It had been rumoured that Daniel Radcliffe would take on the Freddie Mercury role in the forthcoming biopic of the Queen singer after Sacha Baron pulled out, however, Daniel himself has denied these stories.
Sacha Baron pulled out after a huge disagreement on the way the film was written and the direction of the film, leaving a huge problem for the bosses of the film. Since then there has been a number of names put into the hat with Daniel Radcliffe being the front runner.
Producers were said to be seriously considering giving the role to the Harry Potter star, but Daniel Radcliffe has denied this and has even said he is totally wrong for the part.
Queen’s Roger Taylor has said the reason behind Cohen’s departure was down to the seriousness of the film, according to Roger Taylor, Brian May thought the comedy actor would make the film too humorous.
