After that, the band's entire catalog will – eventually – be reissued. No hard news on whether or not the reissues will pave the way for brand new material, although now would be the time: comedic actor Sacha Baron Cohen will portray Freddie Mercury in an upcoming Queen biopic.
In other words, it looks like -- once again -- Queen will, Queen will rock you.
