ick! I'm not too sure that this is such a fantastic idea...
from www.brianmay.com on reports of Johnny Depp portraying Mercury;
Well, if the surviving members of the band are behind it, then maybe it will be cool. As a life-long Queen fan, I'd love to see this. If it's true that Depp is playing Mercury, then that's fantastic news indeed.
I'm definately interested in a big screen biopic of Mercury. But yeah, it's taking a chance. This film is going to truly live or die with how that performance turns out. And nailing the character of Mercury is going to be a real challenge. Love him or hate him, there's no denying that he was one of a kind
Depp would be interesting, certainly a lot better than many I could think of.
Some cases, like Walk the Line, it's really neat seeing the stars sing the songs themselves. Not so with Mercury. Nobody's got pipes like that man had. I could definitely see Johnny in the role.
