Bohemian Rhapsody Sequel reportedly in the Works, Starts After Live Aid
Reports are coming all over the place that there’s a Bohemian Rhapsody sequel in the works and it would begin right after the band’s epic performance in Live Aid!
Page Six recently interviewed music director Rudi Dolezal and he revealed that the surviving members of Queen, together with their long-time manager Jim Beach are looking to create a Bohemian Rhapsody sequel.
Dolezal isn’t just anybody. He’s a close friend of Freddie Mercury and a director for most of the music videos for the band. He started work with the band in 1985 with the song “One Vision” and did 29 more with the last video being “These are the Days of Our Lives” which was released in 1991. Ironically, this was also Mercury’s year of death when he succumbed to HIV complications. In the Page Six interview he was quoted saying:
“I’m sure he plans a sequel that starts with Live Aid.” Dolezal added that the follow-up film is now “being heavily discussed in the Queen family.”
The interview where Dolezal was quoted was centered around Beach who also produced Bohemian Rhapsody. That was a big thing considering the film earned a whopping $870 million worldwide and also gave lead star Rami Malek his first Oscar for Best Actor. The biopic also got three more Oscar awards and a Best Picture nomination.
Even Queen’s guitarist Brian May has teased a possible Bohemian Rhapsody sequel. In December, he was quoted saying:
“I think Live Aid is a good point to leave it. Who knows, there might be a sequel.”
