"Roger and Brian of course are serving as the film's executive music producers".

"After months of speculation, QOL can also confirm that the film is now "as-close-as-that" to start of shooting", the site wrote. Pre-production begins next week in the United Kingdom to prepare for start of principal photography in around London as soon as mid-September.

As for the roles of the other band members, Queen's camp isn't letting that info slip just yet: "You are probably wondering, who will play Roger, Brian and John??? Hint: Fancy being in the film?".
