There will only be a handful of people in this world who have claimed to have seen some Hollywood films, to have missed out on classic action-film ‘Gladiator’. We hear that Ridley Scott’s Oscar-winning film is most likely to get a sequel.
The sequel of ‘Gladiator’ will reportedly focus on Lucius, the son of Lucilla, which was played by Connie Nielsen in the first film. Lucius will reportedly be shown as an adult who is ready to gladiate. In the first film, Russell Crowe’s character, Maximus met his end.
This is not the first time when Ridley has suggested making a sequel to ‘Gladiator’ and there’s no surprise here as the film won several Oscars and was a commercial hit at the box office, becoming a classic in its category.
There is no news as of now, as to which characters will reprise their role from the first film.
‘Gladiator’ starred Russell Crowe, Joaquin Phoenix, Connie Nielsen, Ralf Möller, Oliver Reed, Djimon Hounsou, Derek Jacobi, John Shrapnel, and Richard Harris in pivotal roles.
