Queen Might Actually Be Considering 'Bohemian Rhapsody' Sequel

The sequel would depict Queen's post-Live Aid career, which included filming a number of music videos with Dolezal, including "One Vision".

According to reports, Rudi Dolezal - who directed videos for the band - has said a follow-up film is "being heavily discussed in the Queen family".

Best Actor Rami Malek poses with his award backstage.

Speaking to Page Six, Dolezal said he reckons the band's manager Jim Beach, who produced the flick, is keen to make "a sequel that starts with Live Aid".

Meanwhile, Dolezal told us he's writing a book, "My Friend, Freddie", and will release his interviews with Mercury in a film called, "Freddie Mercury: In His Own Words".

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.

Fans of last year's award-winning Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody may be in for a treat, as the prospect of a sequel to the blockbuster biopic is apparently a very real possibility. The film concludes with the band's iconic 1985 performance of Live Aid before giving way to a brief summary about Mercury's battle with AIDS and his death in November 1991.

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

The Powers That Be at 20th Century Fox will know that there's still more story to be told, and may well engineer a movie sequel that chronicles Freddie's twilight years between 1985 and 1991 while still respecting his memory.

For what it's worth, "Bohemian Rhapsody" absolutely shredded the box office, earning $870 million worldwide thus far. The rock biopic won four Oscars last month and was nominated for Best Picture.

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.
