“I promised news of yesterday’s Queen band meeting. Our main agenda was the Freddie film which I’m happy to tell you, is on course.
“Much of our discussion was about contractual things it’s pretty complex and determining who is responsible for what.
“The pieces are all falling into place, though we are now on a slightly later schedule – filming is now scheduled to start in the Spring, with Sacha Baron Cohenplaying Freddie. The film should be ready for release early in 2014.”
I expect this film to be epic in texture and in detail. Sasha Baron Cohen will most certainly give a fearless performance of the unforgettable Freddie Mercury. I’m really, REALLY looking forward to this film, which is expected to be released in 2014.
No big surprise, Lady Gaga won the most awards at the EMAs in Belfast. She also performed her latest single “Marry The Night” and thanked her fans for the success of her album.
“Thank you for believing in my vision; the success of Born This Way has changed my life,” she told the crowd.
Justin Bieber didn’t share the stage with his girlfriend, and the show’s host, Selena Gomez but he did perform a bit of his Christmas single “Under The Mistletoe.” Totally got me into the holiday spirit, you guys. There were also performances from hometown hereoes Snow Patrol, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bruno Mars and there was a tribute to Queen which featured the band performing a medley of their hits with Adam Lambert.
