What if “Bohemian Rhapsody” had a sequel? Asked about the subject, the guitarist of the group Queen, Brian May, indicated that “several ideas” are considered but on the condition of having “a good scenario” in the end.
Bohemian Rhapsody could finally have a sequel! After having swept away any idea of volume 2, as recently as last year (the idea of a sequel had also been strongly denied in 2019 by one of the producers), the guitarist of the group Queen, Brian May, also among the producers of the film, indicates that things would start to be considered on this plan …
“We are looking at this topic. Yes we took a look at ideasBrian May explained, in a video spotted by NME. “It will be difficult to follow through on what no one could have predicted as such a great success. We worked with our heart and soul to make the first (…). But we think maybe it could happen, but it would take a really good script. It will take time to complete it. “

Boheman Rhapsody having opted for a plot ending at the time of the Live Aid concert in 1985, 6 years before the death of singer Freddie Mercury, one could imagine, for example, a sequel focusing on the years just before his death and on how the band brought the band’s legacy to life afterwards. This period was only passed over at the end of the film, leaving possibilities for a second film.
If the production of Bohemian Rhapsody was not a long quiet river (departure of Sacha Baron Cohen, sidelining of the director Brian Singer, criticism of the veracity of the script, etc.), it is clear that the biopic dedicated to the Queen group was a great public success, especially in France where it achieved 4.3 million admissions when it was released in October 2018.
