In July, Sacha Baron Cohen announced that he gave up on the biopic role dedicated to Freddie Mercury.
“Despite his youth, Daniel impressed movie bosses with his portrayal of gay poet Allen Ginsburg in this year’s movie Kill Your Darlings,” a source told the Daily Star.
“Plus, he’s closer in height to Freddie than Sacha, who’s much taller. Daniel can really sing, too.”
Rumors say Peter Morgan could pen the script.
No official information have been released yet.
