According to the Dailey Star, Daniel Radcliffe has been offered a chance to play Queen's lead singer, Freddie Mercury, in a biopic. There is no official word yet on Radcliffe's involvement in the project, or if he'll even take the role. The role was previously given to Sacha Baren, who left the project over script disagreements. The Daily Star reports:

A source told the Daily Star last night: “Daniel has been told the part is his if he wants it."

“Despite his youth, Daniel impressed movie bosses with his portrayal of gay poet Allen Ginsburg in this year’s movie Kill Your Darlings.

“Plus, he’s closer in height to Freddie than Sacha, who’s much taller. Daniel can really sing, too.”
