A 'Bohemian Rhapsody' Sequel Is Apparently Very Much On The Cards

13 March 2019

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

When it comes to biopics, Bohemian Rhapsody did a pretty fabulous job of telling the story of Queen and its leading lad Freddie Mercury and wrapping it up in a neat little package at the end.

In the interview, which focused on Queen's manager Jim Beach, Dolezal shared that if there were to be a follow-up film, it would take place after the band's iconic Live Aid performance.

"I'm sure he plans a sequel that starts with Live Aid", Dolezal says of Beach, adding that the sequel is now "being heavily discussed in the Queen family".

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!

Dolezal's comment about a sequel seemed to support Queen guitarist Brian May hinting at a followup, as he noted past year, "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. Last month, the film added four Academy Awards - including "Best Actor" for its star Rami Malek - to its growing pile of awards.

"I'm sure he plans a sequel that starts with Live Aid". The Live Aid concert was in 1985 and Mercury died in 1991 due to complications from AIDS. "Who knows, there might be a sequel", May told Classic Rock. However, Bohemian Rhapsody boosted sales of Queen's music hugely, and the film's title track is now the most streamed song released in the 20th Century.

Queen shied away from Sacha-Baron Cohen's original vision for Bohemian Rhapsody, believing it was too "outrageous" for mainstream audiences.
