NME Festival blog: It looks like there might be a ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ sequel


It’s reportedly being “heavily discussed” in the Queen family

Bohemian Rhapsody may get a sequel according to the director of many Queen music videos.

Rudi Dolezal, who directed Queen videos including ‘One Vision’, said that he expects the group’s legendary manager, Jim Beach, will back a second biopic about the band and its late frontman, Freddie Mercury.

Speaking to Page Six about Beach, Dolezal said: “I’m sure he plans a sequel that starts with Live Aid,” adding that a sequel is now “being heavily discussed in the Queen family.”

Bohemian Rhapsody

Beach produced Bohemian Rhapsody, which swept the board at major film awards earlier this year including winning accolades for Best Picture at the Golden Globes and numerous Best Actor awards for Rami Malek, who portrayed Mercury in the blockbuster.

Page Six also reported that Queen nor its management have supported the claims made by Dolezal.

Fans will be able to get stuck into more visual Queen theatrics when a documentary about Queen and Adam Lambert airs in the US this spring.

The two-hour film, The Show Must Go On: The Queen + Adam Lambert Story, is to be shown on ABC and will follow the band’s ongoing collaboration with Adam Lambert.

Lambert, who opened the 2019 Oscars by performing with Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor, has toured regularly as lead singer of the band since 2011.
