A "Bohemian Rhapsody" Sequel Is Being "Heavily Discussed"

Queen music video director: 'Bohemian Rhapsody' sequel being discussed

But according to Rudi Dolezal, a filmmaker who directed videos for Queen (including "Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy" and 'I'm Going Slightly Mad'), there are still many more yarns to be told and for that reason, a follow-up film is "being heavily discussed in the Queen family".

Before the idea of Bohemian Rhapsody 2 got too much hype, a publicist for producer Graham King said there is no truth to the Bohemian Rhapsody sequel rumors, according to Slash Film.

Speaking to Page Six, Dolezal said he reckons the band's manager Jim Beach, who produced the flick, is keen to make "a sequel that starts with Live Aid". We probably (definitely) haven't seen the last of Freddie Mercury's story on the big screen.

Bohemian Rhapsody has made more than $870 million worldwide and won four Oscars last month. The sequel would depict Queen's post-Live Aid career, which included filming a number of music videos with Dolezal, including "One Vision".

The team has released longtime pass rusher Nick Perry in order to make salary cap space for the four incoming free agents. If Pettine can keep Smith producing disruption on the money down for the Packers defense, he'll be worth all that money.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" ends with the band's legendary performance at 1985 benefit concert Live Aid with singer Freddie Mercury reconciling with his bandmates and revealing the news to them that he has contracted HIV.

The film was a global smash hit past year, earning $876m (£669m) at the worldwide box office, becoming the most successful music biopic of all time. Queen guitarist Brian May similarly teased such a project in an interview late previous year, saying, "I think Live Aid is a good point to leave it. Who knows, there might be a sequel", May told Classic Rock. The first movie grossed nearly $900 million worldwide, becoming the top grossing music biopic of all time, and it won for Oscars last month, including Best Actress for Rami Malek. After all, the band did distance themselves from Sacha Baron Cohen's original biopic project.
