Brian May Comments On Freddie Mercury Movie

Queen guitarist Brian May has broken his silence on the controversy surrounding the new Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. The film's initial director Bryan Singer was relieved of his duties with the project but has since claimed that 20th Century Fox fired him wrongfully after he needed time off to tend to an ailing parent.

"We're finally seeing it coming to fruition, although I can't say too much about it," May said in a recent interview. "Eight years we've been working on getting it off the ground. Roger (Taylor) and I -- to some extent against our will -- have hung in there for all this time. But finally we've arrived at a place where we have the right director and the right script and we feel good about it.

"We're very conscious that we get one shot, and if we don't do it, someone else will do it badly. We will do it without avoiding anything - any aspect of Freddie. But we will try to keep it all in balance. I think if we get it right it will crystallize the way the world understands Freddie."
