Queen's Brian May admitted on Instagram Live that he and Roger Taylor are seriously mulling over the prospects for a sequel to the band's Oscar-winning biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, which chronicled that band's story and the life of late-frontman Freddie Mercury.
Despite past comments to the contrary, May was quoted by NME as saying, “We are looking at it. Yeah, we have been looking at ideas. It’s going to be hard to follow that one as none of us could have predicted how massive that was going to be. We put a lot of heart and soul into making it and no one could have predicted (its success) as it was bigger than Gone With The Wind. But yes, we are thinking maybe it could happen, but it would have to be a great script. It’s going to take a while to figure that out.”
Bohemian Rhapsody, which had a $55 million dollar, budget has grossed over $900 million globally, marking the film the most successful musical biopic in history.
