Queen's Brian May Says "Bohemian Rhapsody" Film Sequel Is Unlikely

Via loudersound.com: In March last year, director Rudi Dolezal who worked with Queen on videos for tracks including These Are the Days Of Our LivesThe Show Must Go On and Innuendo, reported that manager Jim Beach was considering a sequel to the award-winning Bohemian Rhapsody movie.

Now, in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Queen guitarist Brian May says a sequel is unlikely to happen. May stated, “Don’t think we didn’t think about it. We’ve talked. Basically we think not at the moment. Things could change, I suppose, but I think it would be difficult.” He added, "There are other ideas that we had, but I don’t think a sequel will happen. But we have looked at it pretty seriously.”

In December last year, actor Ben Hardy who portrayed drummer Roger Taylor in the movie told NME that while he would love to work with the cast again, his only knowledge of a sequel was through the rumor mill. He added: “The film goes up to 1985 so you’ve got another six years there you can tell. It could be a very different movie.”

Bohemian Rhapsody is the biggest music biopic of all time and has scooped four Oscars, two Golden globes, and two BAFTAS. Last week, Queen and Adam Lambert released the chairty single You Are the Champions to raise money for the World Health Organisation's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
