Brian May has confirmed on his blog that a planned Freddie Mercury biopic is now on track for an early 2014 release, with Sacha Baron Cohen still set to portray the iconic late Queen singer. After a meeting with longtime manager Jim Beach and fellow founding Queen member Roger Taylor and sorting out "contractual things," May revealed filming will start in the spring and promised "other plans" that "will have to stay under wraps for now."

Cohen and screenwriter Peter Morgan have been tied to the film since 2010.
