The Queen family is heavily discussing the idea of a sequel to "A Bohemian Rhapsody" and we aren't sure how to take the news.
The film Bohemian Rhapsody was a huge hit, clocking $870 million worldwide on a $50-55 million budget. It got rave reviews and even got Rami Malek an Oscar for best actor. So, what's next? The question was asked to music director Rudi Dolezal by Page Six and he says that the Queen family are now heavily discussing a sequel.
“I’m sure he plans a sequel that starts with Live Aid.” Dolezal added that the follow-up film is now “being heavily discussed in the Queen family.”
This isn't the first time that we heard talks of a potential sequel. Back in December Queen guitar god Brian May said in an interview: “I think Live Aid is a good point to leave it. Who knows, there might be a sequel.”
There's more to the story that can be told but is it possible to do so without exposing some very personal details about Freddie Mercury's health. Exposing his health problems can be considered disrespectful to the great man and may be a spit on his legacy from Hollywood.
We can't be sure how they will proceed with a sequel and we don't even know if their discussions will even lead to anything. Many can argue that the film doesn't need a sequel and this is just 20th Century Fox trying to milk the cow.
Do you think A Bohemian Rhapsody sequel is necessary?
