Brian May, the renowned guitarist of Queen, has expressed his interest in creating a sequel to the globally successful film “Bohemian Rhapsody” (2018). However, he believes that realizing this endeavor may still take some time.
A few months ago, May mentioned, “We’re talking about it. I’m very proud of that movie, and the actors who portrayed us were incredible. Making a sequel is a very attractive proposition. Just working with them again would be worth it.” When questioned about the possibility of a sequel during an appearance on the SiriusXM show “Trunk Nation” this week, May provided an update.
“It’s an undeniable fact that we are discussing it. We are enthusiastic about making a sequel. We just need to find the right script. It took us 12 years to find a script suitable for the first movie, so it’s not surprising that the next one won’t be easy. There is a story to be told beyond ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.’ A lot has happened since then.”
May emphasized that they do not want to create or release the sequel until they are certain that the story can be transformed into a film that resonates with people’s hearts, just like “Bohemian Rhapsody” did. Therefore, the concise answer is, “We want to make it, but we haven’t found the right approach yet.”
In other news, next month Brian May will release a remastered edition to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the mini-album “Star Fleet Project,” which he created and released in 1983 alongside Edward Van Halen (G), Alan Gratzer (Dr), Phil Chen (B), and Fred Mandel (Key).
