Fox has rounded out the cast of the Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” with Allen Leech cast as Freddie Mercury’s personal manager, Paul Prenter.
Rami Malek is starring as the frontman, with Ben Hardy, Gwilym Lee, and Joe Mazzello as members of Queen. Production on the film will begin this fall, with Bryan Singer directing from Justin Haythe’s script. New Regency and Graham King’s Gk Films are the production companies.
Prenter was fired by Mercury for disclosing inside information about the singer after working with him for nine years, from 1977 to 1986.
Leech’s credits include “Bellevue” opposite Anna Paquin, “Downton Abbey,” and “The Imitation Game” opposite Benedict Cumberbatch. He
