Brian May has posted on his official website that 2014 is shaping up to be a busy year for Queen.
May says: “It looks like it will be a very busy year for us. We seem to be still hovering on the button as I write, ready to start the engine rolling on the Freddie film. It’s been a long haul as you know, trying to assemble the right team to make the film. And I have learned, in my short time in the movie world, that availability is everything. It’s no use assembling a team whose members are not all available at the same time!
“There are windows of opportunity, when everyone you need is free, but the windows can close unexpectedly, and it's back to the drawing board! But the line-up is looking very exciting ... I think just the announcement will cause a bit of a sensation!”
More unexpectedly, May says he and drummer Roger Taylor are plotting new live shows under the Queen banner. May says: “We’ve also been looking at doing some dates - Roger and myself, and who knows who else! Ha ha! Of course these days nothing is a secret for more than the 5 minutes it takes for Twitter and Facebook to spread rumours. I think we’re up for one more swing out there. In fact, in our Queen meeting today, we drank on it!”
