'Bohemian Rhapsody' Sequel Is Being 'Heavily Discussed'

Additionally, Bohemian Rhapsody was nominated for Best Picture, won four Oscars, and was the highest-grossing music biopic ever, earning $850 million, so a sequel could be a successful endeavor.

"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.

Rudi Dolezal shot the videos for some of Queen's biggest hits, including Seven Seas of Rhye and One Vision, as well as becoming a close personal friend of Freddie Mercury.

"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".

Dolezal told Page Six that a follow-up film is now "being heavily discussed in the Queen family" and would likely pick up with the band's Live Aid performance. Perhaps they'll instead focus on the years after Mercury's death, including their stints with Paul Rodgers and Adam Lambert, but who would really want to see that? He quipped in an interview of the project, "I think Live Aid is a good point to leave it".

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. 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. "Who knows, there might be a sequel". 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.

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.
