Rami Malek to play Freddie Mercury in Queen movie Bohemian Rhapsody

So, the latest news. At least they found an actor of color.

Not a very imaginative title. 

My my expectations are very low. 

Thoughts? Reasons for hopefulness?

I would like to be excited! But seeing how the project has been on-again-off-again for so long, I can't muster any energy until there's something concrete like set pictures, or a trailer.

I'm the same. Rami Malek is my favourite of the would-be-Freddies so far, but I'm not going to get invested in imagining him in the role it until we have solid proof that he's actually on set shooting the movie :D
