Katy Perry And Kristen Stewart Fighting Over Role In Freddie Mercury Movie?

Katy Perry and Kristen Stewart are reportedly at odds with one another over a role in an upcoming film based on Queen frontman Freddie Mercury.

According to a recent article, both are up against Lady Gaga for the role of Mary Austin, Mercury's lifelong best friend and confidante with whom he had a romantic relationship in the 1970s.

"Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Kristen Stewart are on the short list for Mary, who played a huge role in Freddie's life," a source reportedly told Star magazine (quote via Popcrush). "They all desperately want the part, and it's getting ugly!"

Sacha Baron Cohen is slated to play Mercury, and reportedly has the final say in choosing his leading lady. Screenwriter Peter Morgan says he has had to tread carefully in dealing with the three surviving members of Queen for the film, which has no title or projected release date as yet.
