Mercury said of Austin in 1985: "All my lovers asked me why they couldn't replace Mary [Austin], but it's simply impossible. "The only friend I've got is Mary and I don't want anybody else.

Sacha Baron Cohen is said to be taking singing lessons in order to perform as Freddie Mercury in the currently-untitled film.  Kristen Stewart, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry  were earlier reported to have competed for the role

  1. I'm eagerly awaiting the films release! Been waiting couple of years now. Please hurry but do a good job even though there is no one that can ever replace either of them, and they were special together as depicted in every single photo. Thank you for posting information on the upcoming film. Please keep us posted!
