WTF: A sequel to Bohemian Rhapsody is in the works

According to Page Six, one of the band's leading music video directors is hoping to follow in Bohemian Rhapsody's award-winning footsteps.

Rami Malek, victor of Best Actor for "Bohemian Rhapsody", poses in the press room at the 91st Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood and Highland on February 24, 2019 in Hollywood, California.

Bohemian Rhapsody went on to win four Oscars, including Best Actor for Rami Malek.

Rudi Dolezal, who directed videos for Queen and became close with Mercury during his life, said Jim Beach, the brand's legendary manager, is looking for a follow-up.

Maybe the sequel would take a closer look at the more hard times in Mercury's life, especially if Dolezal is correct and it does start with the iconic Live Aid concert. The Live Aid concert was in 1985 and Mercury died in 1991 due to complications from AIDS.

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 representative for Bohemian Rhapsody producer Graham King has denied a sequel is in development to United States blog Slash Film. The film garnered more than $870 million worldwide since its release last November. That's who sang "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions" at the Oscars, a well-received performance and why we're having this sequel discussion in the first place.

Of course, with great cinematic success comes the inevitable proposition of a follow-up - a second album, if you will - and Dolezal is of the belief that the entire Queen family are mulling over a potential Bohemian Rhapsody sequel that would explore Freddie's life post-1985.

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