Apparently There’s Talks Of A ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Sequel

Apparently There’s Talks Of A ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Sequel

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.

Mercury and Queen's story has always been fascinating and the filmmakers did an exceptional job bringing it to the screen previous year in Bohemian Rhapsody. In an interview with Page Six, Dolezal has confirmed that 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.

Dolezal's comment about a sequel seemed to support Queen guitarist Brian May hinting at a followup, as he noted a year ago, "I think Live Aid is a good point to leave it".

Maybe the sequel would take a closer look at the more hard times in Mercury's life, especially if Dolezal is correct and it does start with the iconic Live Aid concert.

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

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

In the absence of a Bohemian Rhapsody sequel, there is still more of Mercury's story to be told, as Dolezal revealed that he's writing a book called My Friend, Freddie and plans to release interviews he had with Mercury in a film Freddie Mercury: In His Own Words. "Who knows, there might be a sequel", May told Classic Rock. The Mercury role was once going to be played by Sacha Baron Cohen.

Of course, with great cinematic success comes the inevitable proposition of a follow-up - a second album, if you will - and Dolezal is of the belief that the entire Queen family are mulling over a potential Bohemian Rhapsody sequel that would explore Freddie's life post-1985.
