Rami Returns? A ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Sequel Might Be in the Works

Listen up, Queen fans. We probably (definitely) haven’t seen the last of Freddie Mercury’s story on the big screen.

According to Page Six, one of the band’s leading music video directors is hoping to follow in Bohemian Rhapsody’s award-winning footsteps.

Rudi Dolezal, who directed videos for Queen and became close with Mercury during his life, said Jim Beach, the brand’s legendary manager, is looking for a follow-up.

“I’m sure he plans a sequel that starts with ‘Live Aid,’” and said the sequel is “being heavily discussed in the Queen family.” 

Bohemian Rhapsody 1.0 was produced by Beach and won four Oscars last month, and was nominated in the Best Picture category. Rami Malek took home the Best Actor award for the rock biopic. The film garnered more than $870 million worldwide since its release last November. Lead guitarist Brian May also teased a sequel during an interview in November. 

“I think Live Aid [where Rhapsody leaves off] is a good point to leave it. Who knows, there might be a sequel,” May told Classic Rock.

You know what they Queen says? “The Show Must Go On.”

Whoa, Mike Myers Took a Pretty Major Risk Before Signing On to Do ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’
