Freddie Mercury is not impressed.
Originally released in 1984 as a Giorgio Moroder-produced synth-pop solo single from Freddie Mercury, this version is closer to the classic Queen sound.
Orbit, who previously worked with Madonna on her 1998 album Ray Of Light and 2012’s MDNA, took to Twitter yesterday to announce he is “definitely working with QUEEN. Amazing songs. That’s all I’m sayin 4 now. Watch this space.”
Turns out releases from Michael Jackson and Johnny Cash may not be the only albums getting the old-is-now-new treatment in the coming months.
According to Deadline, British actor Ben Whishaw — best known for his role as Q in the most recent Bond flick, Skyfall — will play Mercury in the upcoming biopic.
May doesn’t like the idea, mainly because it would make him, Roger Taylor and the others feel more like an exhibit at the Museum of Science than a rock concert.

After 30 years, music fans hoping to hear the long-awaited duets of Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson will finally get their chance.
The actor has since dropped out of the biopic due to “creative differences” with the surviving members of Queen.
