Is QUEEN Discussing The Possibility Of 'Bohemian Rhapsody' Sequel?
Bohemian Rhapsody is undoubtedly one of the biggest films of 2019 and it sure brought new attention to legendary English rock band Queen and the legacy of the late, great Freddie Mercury. The story of the Golden Globe, SAG, BAFTA, and Academy award-winning film ended after the band's famed Live Aid performance in 1985, seemingly leaving the doors open for a possible sequel.
Director Rudi Dolezal, who directed a handful of Queen's music videos, discussed its possibility during a recent interview with Page Six. Dolezal claimed the band's manager and the biopic's producer Jim Beach will more than likely be on board to do a sequel: “I’m sure he plans a sequel that starts with Live Aid.” He also added that a sequel is now “being heavily discussed in the Queen family."
The remaining members of Queen and their management, however, didn't support the director's claims but should they decide to give Bohemian Rhapsody 2 a go, there's still plenty of room for them to tell more Queen stories post-Live Aid, leading up to Freddie Mercury's death in 1991.
