Sacha Baron Cohen has left the planned biopic of Freddie Mercury after running into creative differences with the surviving members of his band, Queen.

The Bruno actor reportedly exited the project due to creative differences over the direction and focus of the film with the remaining members of Queen, the band the iconic singer fronted.

According to, while Cohen was keen to make a “gritty tell-all” about the gay singer – who passed away in 1991 after a long battle with AIDS – the band are more interested in a family-friendly tale.
