The British actor Ben Whishaw, better known for his role as "Q" in "Skyfall", is to play Freddie Mercury in a movie based on the influential rock band Queen, according to the British media.

Whishaw, 33, also known for his role in "Perfume: the Story of a Murderer", will play Mercury, the rock icon who died 22 years ago, substituting the controversial Sacha Baron Cohen who rejected the role in July due to "artistic disagreements".

The charismatic Freddie Mercury died in 1991 at 45 years old; a day after confessing he had AIDS.

The film is to be directed by Dexter Fletcher and will take in Queen's trajectory from their beginnings in 1971 until their emblematic 1985 Wembley concert, considered to be one of the best live performances in history.

Queen guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor will supervise the soundtrack of the film, which is to include hits such as "Bohemian Rhapsody", "We Are The Champions" and "We Will Rock You", also the name of the musical dedicated to the group.

The script has been written by Peter Morgan, known for his writing of the film "The Queen", based on the Queen of England and the film will be produced by Graham King in collaboration with Tribeca Productions.
