A Queen insider claims a “Bohemian Rhapsody” sequel is ‘supposedly’ in the early stages of development. There aren’t any details on how that would work, even with one of the movie’s producers saying it will not happen.
“Bohemian Rhapsody” was a BIG success, and most of the time, anything that’s a big success is automatically considered for a sequel.
But did “Bohemian Rhapsody” leave room for a ‘Part 2?’ The movie wraps up with QUEEN’s 1985 performance at Live Aid, before going into a brief summary about Freddie Mercury’s battle with AIDS, and his death in November 1991.
The Queen insider told the “New York Post” that a follow-up is, quote, “being heavily discussed in the Queen family.” This guy may be reliable, as he directed dozens of Queen music videos and did some documentaries on the band.
Once the word got out, one of the producers of “Bohemian Rhapsody” said that it wasn’t happening.
Queen guitarist Brian May has teased the possibility of a sequel in the past, but there’s really not much more to cover from the final six years of Freddie’s life. One angle they could take is picking up after Freddie’s death, and somehow spin a story out of the Paul Rodgers and Adam Lambert year.
