Fans of late superstar Freddie Mercury could expect a sequel of Bohemian Rhapsody, Queen’s music video director has revealed recently.
The talks of the follow-up to the biopic were in the air ever since it scooped four Academy Awards at the 2019 Oscars.
The movie’s sequel would likely start with the iconic Live Aid performance of July 1985, according to filmmaker Rudi Dolezal.
Dolezal said the Queen family was ‘heavily’ discussing the sequel.
‘I’m sure he [Queen’s manager Jim Beach] plans a sequel that starts with Live Aid,’ the music video director told Page Six.
‘The movie is being heavily discussed in the Queen family.’
Dolezal had previously worked on several hit videos of Queen such as The Invisible Man and These Are the Days of Our Lives, to name a few.
Bohemian Rhapsody ends with the band’s Live Aid performance, which happens to be the time when Dolezal started working with Queen.
The music director said the follow-up movie would begin where the first one finished because it was one of the most iconic moments in rock history.
On July 13, 1985, Queen gave a 21-minute performance at London’s Wembley stadium as part of the dual-venue benefit concert.
It was a truly legendary performance which changed music forever.
Bohemian Rhapsody celebrates the band in all its glory, with a special focus on Freddie Mercury, Queen’s lead singer and electric front-man.
The biopic traces Freddie’s life as he defies stereotypes to become one of the greatest singers ever through his iconic songs.
Rami Malek, who portrayed Freddie in the film, won Best Actor at the recent Academy Awards.
Though the movie lost the Best Picture award to Green Book, it received three other awards for Best Film Editing, Best Sound Mixing, and Best Sound Editing.
The film was an incredible success, grossing more than $875 million (£666 million) across the globe.
