Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury in "Bohemian Rhapsody".

One sneaky fan managed to upload a video of Mr. Robot actor Rami Malek recreating Queen's iconic Live Aid performance for Bryan Singer's new biopic, in which Malek plays Freddie Mercury.

There's no word yet on what role Myers will play, though there are still plenty of parts to be cast in the film, which is now filming in and around London, England. They opened with the first part of "Bohemian Rhapsody", then quickly segued into then-recent hits "Radio Gaga" and "Hammer to Fall" and perennial favorite "Crazy Little Thing Called Love".

'At one point I said to everybody, "I'm out".

The footage also features Gwilym Lee portraying Queen's Brian May, Ben Hardy as Roger Taylor and Joseph Mazzello as John Deacon.

Downton Abbey star Allen Leech will play Mercury's manager, Paul Prenter, with Lucy Boyton as Mercury's longtime muse, Mary Austin.

Recently, it was announced that the film will chronicle from 1970 till their Live Aid performance in 1985. You can tell he's been training hard for the role, throwing out some air punches to the imaginary crowd and doing a damn fine job of embodying Mercury and his signature stage presence. Brian Singer, who directed the superheroes movies X Men and Superman Returns, is the director. The Freddie Mercury Biopic will be out 25th December 2018.
