“Bohemian Rhapsody” director Bryan Singer shared a new photo of Rami Malek in action as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury.

“Couldn’t help myself and had to post this iPhone pic,” Singer posted on Monday night, accompanying a photo that was taken mid-performance during filming.

The new sneak-peek comes one month after the first photo of Malek as Mercury was revealed.

The movie will follow Queen from the band’s inception in 1970, when Mercury teamed with Brian May and Roger Taylor, until that famous 1985 Live Aid performance.

Malek joined the long-gestating project from producer Graham King of GK Films last November, following Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Whishaw, who had both previously been attached to play Mercury. He is joined by Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Ben Hardy, Gwilym Lee, Joe Mazzello and Lucy Boynton.

Justin Haythe (“Red Sparrow”) penned the script with King, Beach and Singer producing. Denis O’Sullivan, Arnon Milchan, and Jane
Rosenthal are executive producers.
