Katy Perry has her own biopic coming out on July 5 and now she apparently wants to star in one of her idol’s biopics. The pop star hopes to play Mary Austin, Freddie Mercury’s long-time girlfriend in an upcoming film about the Queen frontman.
We’re not sure if this is fact or fiction right now, especially considering it was reported in The Mirror and they spoke with a “friend.” Right now, Sacha Baron Cohen is attached to the role of Mercury, which would make this dream casting.
According to the Mirror, a friend of Katy’s said: “Katy would love to be in the film as she is such a huge fan. She would want to play Mary Austin ideally. Katy has a similar look to Mary and would be a brilliant foil to Sacha.”
Personally, I’d love to see her in a Freddie Mercury biopic. I mean, the girl dressed up as him for Halloween.
