There’s been yet another leak of Sony emails and, this time, we’re more than a bit curious about the rumours. Will Benedict Cumberbatch play David Bowie in the delayed film about Freddie Mercury, Under Pressure? The prospect of seeing our collective man-crush in a Ziggy Stardust wig and make-up is too good to ignore. 

When BA’s High Life magazine asked the Sherlock actor what character he’d most like to play last year, his response was: ‘David Bowie’. And now the leaked emails suggest that bosses at Sony have been considering him for the role too. It seems like a match made in heaven to us. 

Will he or won’t he? All we can do is (im)patiently wait.
