Plans for 'Bohemian Rhapsody' sequel underway

Beach also produced "Bohemian Rhapsody", which has made more than $870 million worldwide.

Fans of last year's award-winning Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody may be in for a treat, as the prospect of a sequel to the blockbuster biopic is apparently a very real possibility.

For his part, Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek, whose portrayal of Mercury earned him an Academy Award, has yet to be contacted about a possible sequel.

Dolezal has shared with Page Six, that he is in the midst of writing a book, "My Friend, Freddie" and plans to release prior interviews he did with Mercury in a film, "Freddie Mercury: In His Own Words". The rock biopic won four Oscars last month and was nominated for best picture.

He says the follow-up is "being heavily discussed in the Queen family".

Dolezal told Page Six that a follow-up film is now "being heavily discussed in the Queen family" and would likely pick up with the band's Live Aid performance.

"I'm sure he plans a sequel that starts with Live Aid".

Dolezal's comment about a sequel seemed to support Queen guitarist Brian May hinting at a followup, as he noted previous year, "I think Live Aid is a good point to leave it".

The music video director teamed up with Queen around the time of the Live Aid performance and went on to do 30 videos for the band and its members, including Mercury's "These are the Days of Our Lives" in 1991.

A second film following the lives of Freddie Mercury and his Queen bandmates might not sound like the best idea, but you can't blame the producers for trying to strike gold twice.

The film was a global smash hit a year ago, earning $876m (£669m) at the worldwide box office, becoming the most successful music biopic of all time.

Queen shied away from Sacha-Baron Cohen's original vision for Bohemian Rhapsody, believing it was too "outrageous" for mainstream audiences.
