'Bohemian Rhapsody' sequel being discussed?

'Bohemian Rhapsody' sequel being discussed?

Dolezal shared of Queen's manager Jim Beach: "I'm sure he plans a sequel that starts with Live Aid".

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".

Bohemian Rhapsody went on to win four Oscars, including Best Actor for Rami Malek.

The movie ends with Mercury and the band's iconic Live Aid performance, which is around the time that Dolezal began working with Queen - beginning with their 1985 song, "One Vision". Their final collaboration was in 1991, on the video for 'These Are the Days of Our Lives.' Mercury would go on to pass away that year.

After protests, Kremlin insists it's not moving to restrict internet
The protests in Moscow , the southern city of Voronezh, and Khabarovsk in the far east had all been officially authorised. A data released by non-government organization White Counter, the protesters numbered to around 15,300 people.

Queen guitar god Brian May has hinted about a sequel to the film, and that there's more of Mercury's tale to tell.

They add: "From his humble beginnings and meteoric rise on reality TV to now standing center stage as lead singer of Queen + Adam Lambert, the documentary features brand-new interviews with Lambert, his parents Leila and Eber, and Queen founding members Brian May and Roger Taylor, as well as American Idol judge Simon Cowell, Golden Globe and Oscar victor for Best Actor Bohemian Rhapsody's Rami Malek, and Foo Fighters' Taylor Hawkins". You would think that the tragic passing of one of rock's greatest vocalists would make a sequel impossible?

A sequel to "Bohemian Rhapsody" is reportedly in the works.

Controversy followed the movie throughout its long gestation period, with the role of Mercury originally filled by Borat actor Sacha Baron Cohen, with Ben Whishaw also attached to the part before Malek was hired. The project was championed by eventual executive producers Jane Rosenthal and Robert De Niro. We probably (definitely) haven't seen the last of Freddie Mercury's story on the big screen.
