A sequel to "Bohemian Rhapsody" is reportedly in the works.

Meanwhile, Dolezal told us he's writing a book, "My Friend, Freddie", and will release his interviews with Mercury in a film called, "Freddie Mercury: In His Own Words".

The director of Queen's classic videos says the band's management team are talking about a sequel to the Bohemian Rhapsody film.

Rudi Dolezal, a filmmaker who directed a number of videos for Queen, told Page Six this week that a follow-up film to the Oscar-nominated film is now being discussed by members of the Queen family.

Rudi Dolezal has spilled that a follow-up to the biopic has been "heavily discussed" with the band's manager Jim Beach after the first movie bagged four Academy Awards.

One of their topics of discussion was the blistering, $800 million success of Bohemian Rhapsody, the music-powered biopic that exceeded expectations in just about every respect - box office, reviews... even the Oscars! A rep for Queen's record label told us they have not heard about any sequel, but that "The Show Must Go On: The Queen + Adam Lambert Story" will air on ABC in April.

Best Actor Rami Malek poses with his award backstage. Their final collaboration was in 1991, on the video for 'These Are the Days of Our Lives.' Mercury would go on to pass away that year. Lead guitarist Brian May also teased a sequel during an interview in November.

Dolezal, who made 30 videos with Queen, began working with the band around the period of time the last scenes in Bohemian Rhapsody depict. "Who knows, there might be a sequel". The first movie grossed nearly $900 million worldwide, becoming the top grossing music biopic of all time, and it won for Oscars last month, including Best Actress for Rami Malek. The Mercury role was once going to be played by Sacha Baron Cohen.
