Actor Ben Whishaw (Skyfall, Brideshead Revisited, Cloud Atlas), who was included in Towleroad's 53 Most Powerful Coming Outs of 2013, is confirmed to play Freddie Mercury in an upcoming biopic.
Hot off directing the musical Sunshine On Leith, British actor-turned-helmer Dexter Fletcher has closed a deal to helm the movie on rock supergroup Queen, with frontman Freddie Mercury to be played Ben Whishaw. GK Films’ Graham King is producing, and Sony Pictures has first crack at the film. This has been a passion project for King for several years, and it started with Sacha Baron Cohen attached to play Mercury, the singular-voiced frontman.
According to Deadline, "the pic will tell the formative coming-of-age story of the group, culminating in Queen headlining Live Aid in 1985. Queen’s performance is considered one of rock’s all-time great concert appearances."

The New York-based Satanic Temple that held a "pink mass" over the grave of Westboro Baptist Church leader Fred Phelp's mother to turn her "gay for all eternity" has started a $20,000 IndieGogo campaign to place a Satanic Monument near the Oklahoma capitol to compliment the Ten Commandments monument currently on the north lawn.
According to the campaign page:
The existing Ten Commandments monument, donated to the Capitol Preservation Commission in 2009 by Mike Ritze, a representative of the Oklahoma State Legislature and ordained Southern Baptist Deacon, has raised the ire of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) who filed suit in August of 2013, noting that, “the monument stands alone, with no other monuments or memorials in the immediate vicinity.” Also of concern to the ACLU is the “self-evidently exclusive” religious message “that supports and endorses the faiths and creeds of some churches and sects.” We believe that in being allowed to place our monument within the proximity of the Ten Commandments monument, we can appease the ACLU’s concerns.
By accepting our offer, the good people of Oklahoma City will have the opportunity to show that they espouse the basic freedoms spelled out in the Constitution. We imagine that the ACLU will also embrace such a response. Allowing us to donate a monument would show that the Oklahoma City Council does not discriminate, and both the religious and non-religious should be happy with such an outcome. Our mission is to bring people together by finding common sentiments that create solutions that everyone can appreciate and enjoy.
Donors to the Indiegogo campaign will receive official Satanic Temple t-shirts, mugs, bumper stickers, buttons, membership cards and framed certificates of membership with a wax seal.
