Rudi Dolezal, a filmmaker who directed numerous music videos for Queen and became close with Mercury during his life, tells Page Six that he has little doubt a sequel to the recent film biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” will happen.
Dolezal says Queen’s manager Jim Beach, who also produced the film which has made more than $870 million worldwide and won multiple Oscars, has “plans for a sequel that starts with Live Aid”. He also says a sequel is “being heavily discussed in the Queen family”.
The current film ends with Mercury and the band’s iconic Live Aid performance in 1985. Queen guitar legend Brian May has previously hinted about a sequel to the film with more of Mercury’s tale to tell. Mercury ultimately died in 1991.
At the same time though, a friend of actor Rami Malek tells the outlet us they hadn’t heard of any talk about a new film, and a rep for Queen’s record label says they have not heard about any sequel.
