The movie, which will be helmed by first time director Dexter Fletcher with a script written by The Queen and Frost/Nixon scribe Peter Morgan, will tell the story of the band’s rise to fame, culminating with Queen’s legendary performance at the 1985 charity concert, Live Aid, which was organized by Bob Geldof to raise funds for the famine in Ethiopia.
