Thanks to director Bryan Singer, we’ve got a new photo of Rami Malek completely rocking out as Freddie Mercury in the upcoming biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. The director said that he couldn’t help himself from posting the photo. It’s certainly filled with a lot of energy!

The film “chronicles Queen from 1970, when Mercury teamed with Brian May and Roger Taylor, until the band’s performance at Live Aid in 1985, six years before the singer died of complications from AIDS. Malek channels Mer­cury’s look from that global-­concert event.”

Couldn’t help myself and had to post this iPhone pic

Singer has said that this won’t be a traditional biopic, as it’s a story that will honor the music. Malek looks like he’s the perfect actor to take on this role and we’re moerse excited to see his performance.

Bohemian Rhapsody will hit theaters on December 25th, 2018.
