One of the more controversial Oscar winners in recent years could be getting a followup down the road.
The Queen biopic earned five Oscar nominations and won star Rami Malek the award for Best Actor.
The legendary rock band allegedly turned the Academy down, so it's still unclear how the 91st Oscars will open.
Rami Malek does a convincing job of reanimating one of rock's greatest frontmen, but that isn't enough to save this feature-length Queen ad.
The film is titled “Bohemian Rhapsody" and is expected to begin shooting early next year.
