Katy Perry has her biography style film hitting theatres this July, but today, she's in the news because of ANOTHER movie she's rumored to star in.
British publication The Mirror is reporting that Katy is in the running to play Mary Austin, the long time girlfriend of Queen frontman, Freddie Mercury, in a new biopic about his life.
It's no secret that Katy is a HUGE fan of Freddie—she dressed up as him for her 24th birthday party, and has spoken publicly about how the band's lyrics inspired her to start her career as a singer.
Inside sources are saying that Katy is eager to make the jump from pop star to actress, and that she thinks a role in this flick could solidify her as a big-screen leading lady.
The film is already underway—Sacha Baron Cohen is set to star as Freddie Mercury, and has already started working with the remaining band members of Queen to get the ball rolling.
Graham King, who's known for his work on The Departed, will produce the film, and has already begun securing the rights to many popular Queen songs, including We Will Rock You, Bohemian Rhapsody, and We Are The Champions.
So let me know below in the comments section if you think this is a role that Katy was born to play, or if you'd maybe prefer to see her in a romantic comedy, horror, drama, or other genre!
