BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY

20th Century Fox



Is it true that a sequel to "Bohemian Rhapsody" is "being heavily discussed in the Queen family"?

That's what Queen music video director Rudi Dolezal told Page Six, adding, "I’m sure [Queen’s manager Jim Beach] plans a sequel that starts with Live Aid."

While that might make sense from a financial standpoint -- the movie has so earned about $869.5 million -- there appears to be no truth to this rumor.

A publicist for producer Graham King, who spent years bringing "Bohemian Rhapsody" to the big screen, told Slashfilm talks of a sequel are not true.

So we don't have to wonder how a Queen biopic without Freddie Mercury (or Rami Malek, who won an Oscar for playing the flamboyant showman), would go.

Enjoy the resurgence of the band's music (just about every commercial on TV seems to be set to "Don't Stop Me Now" or "I Want It All"), but don't expect a second film.

You can, however, still see them live. They're touring with new frontman, Adam Lambert, who performed with the surviving band members at this year's Oscars.
