A "Bohemian Rhapsody" Sequel Is Being "Heavily Discussed"

Surely, this has got to be a joke... right?

Rami Malek stars as Freddie Mercury during his the Live Aid concert in Bohemian Rhapsody scene.

The film was a global smash hit previous year, earning $876m (£669m) at the worldwide box office, becoming the most successful music biopic of all time. The rock biopic won four Oscars last month and was nominated for best picture. He ended up doing around 30 videos for the band and its members, ending with Mercury's final video shoot for "These Are the Days of Our Lives" in 1991. With that in mind, it's hard to imagine Queen wanting to depict the most harrowing era of Mercury's life in a follow-up film.

The director of dozens of classic Queen videos says that the band and its management are lining up behind a sequel to the smash hit Freddie Mercury film, "Bohemian Rhapsody". But it looks like we might be getting one anyway, according to Queen music video director Rudi Dolezal at least.

To do it without a program, and to stick with it without a sober coach or AA or classes - I think it's extraordinary. This isn't the first time that Justin Bieber has spoken about his depression .

Dolezal tells Page Six that the potential sequel would start where Bohemian Rhapsody left off. Dolezal cites Queen manager Jim Beach's intentions to pick up the story post-Live Aid performance. Perhaps Dolezal heard some whispers, or maybe he's just having fun with the idea.

Within weeks of its release, Bohemian Rhapsody became the highest-grossing music biopic of all-time, bringing in $870 million worldwide, despite mixed reviews from fans and critics. Many called the film a fun celebration of the iconic band that unfortunately doesn't dive deep and explore its characters in a meaningful way.

Bohemian Rhapsody is now rerunning in selected TGV cinemas in conjunction with the 91st Academy Awards that just took place recently.
