Katy Perry is rumored to be among a list of actresses considered for the part of Mary Austin, Freddie Mercury‘s longtime girlfriend, in a new Queen movie. Sacha Baron Cohen has been tapped to play the Queen frontman, and is working with Roger Taylor and Brian May, the two remaining Queen band members, on the film.
“Katy would love to be in the film, as she is such a huge fan,” said one of her friends to The Mirror. “She would want to play Mary Austin ideally. Katy has a similar look to Mary and would be a brilliant foil to Sacha.”
Graham King, the Oscar-winning producer of films like “The Departed,” is set up to produce the Queen movie. Stephen Frears will direct it. Filming is set to start next year; do you think Perry will be a part of the production?
