While there was a lot of back-and-forth on whether or not the upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, would ever actually happen, it was recently revealed that it’s still a go. Mr. Robot star Rami Malek has already been confirmed as the actor to play Mercury, and now, the rest of the cast has been announced.

To play the rest of Queen’s band members are British actor Gwilym Lee as lead guitarist Brian May, Joe Mazzello of Jurassic Park as bass guitarist John Deacon, and Ben Hardy of X-Men: Apocalypse as drummer Roger Taylor.

On the honor of playing May, Lee tweeted the following:

According to the band’s website, Bohemian Rhapsody filming will begin “very, very soon.”
