On their website, Queen Online, the band shared how happy they are with the casting as it proved to put smile on their faces. They wrote:
“Elsewhere in the Queen related ‘motion picture business’, things are really moving along behind the scenes. Although not yet privy to the all the finer details higher up the Hollywood chain, the Queen Team is now moving into position and meeting our new film colleagues and counterparts in what is proving to be a very exciting project. One thing, we can confirm is the detail on the band that the film company is going into is quite staggering, just ask Queen Archivist Greg Brooks…well, don’t actually, because he is too busy working on the movie.
The feedback from the extras agency was also quite phenomenal! They were inundated with fans from across the globe looking to grab a chance of being part of the movie, so thanks for your enthusiasm, it really did bring a smile to our faces…or was it just that there are lots of people out there with 70s and 80s haircuts looking to break into the movies? Either way, once again, Queen fans lead the way and for that, we salute you.”
