This Would Of Been Amazing

RAMI MALEK almost had another gig playing FREDDIE MERCURY.  There was talk of him doing a cameo in the ELTON JOHN movie “Rocketman”.

Dexter Fletcher directed “Rocketman”, after being called in to FINISH directing “Bohemian Rhapsody” when original director Bryan Singer was fired.

Dexter says, quote, “There was an idea I had [at] one point, where Elton’s in a restaurant with his mother.  I thought . . . Freddie could be at another table and they wave at each other!

“That would have been amazing, [but] it didn’t come to pass.  It would’ve been a little too knowing . . . I’m not looking to set out to make a cinematic universe!”
