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

A

According to reports, Rudi Dolezal - who directed videos for the band - has said a follow-up film is "being heavily discussed in the Queen family".

A representative for Bohemian Rhapsody producer Graham King has denied a sequel is in development to U.S. blog Slash Film.

Meanwhile, Dolezal told us he's writing a book, "My Friend, Freddie", and will release his interviews with Mercury in a film called, "Freddie Mercury: In His Own Words".

One of their topics of discussion was the blistering, $800 million success of Bohemian Rhapsody, the music-powered biopic that exceeded expectations in just about every respect - box office, reviews... even the Oscars!

The director of dozens of classic Queen videos says that the band and its management are lining up behind a sequel to the smash hit Freddie Mercury film, "Bohemian Rhapsody". Rami Malek took home the Best Actor award for the rock biopic. He quipped in an interview of the project, "I think Live Aid is a good point to leave it".

Page Six further reports that Malek said he had not heard anything about a sequel, nor had Queen's record label.

"I'm sure he plans a sequel that starts with Live Aid".

Dolezal, who made 30 videos with Queen, began working with the band around the period of time the last scenes in Bohemian Rhapsody depict.

The film was a global smash hit a year ago, earning $876m (£669m) at the worldwide box office, becoming the most successful music biopic of all time. The film concludes with the band's iconic 1985 performance of Live Aid before giving way to a brief summary about Mercury's battle with AIDS and his death in November 1991.

At this year's Oscars, Rami Malek was named Best Actor for his portrayal of frontman Freddie - who died at the age of 45 in 1991 from AIDS-related pneumonia - whilst the movie also received golden statuettes for Best Film Editing, Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing.
