A sequel to Ridley Scott’s swords and sandals epic Gladiator has been in the offing since at least 2001, a year after the first movie unleashed hell.

Since then, it’s been through various incarnations, among them being a ‘multi-generational prequel’, which would perhaps have allowed Russell Crowe, slain in the first movie, to potentially return in Godfather II style.

But now there’s a tidbit of news from the movie’s producers.

Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are doing the rounds for the current movie, Men In Black: International, and were asked about the progress of Gladiator 2 by HeyUGuys.

“We’re working with Ridley, that’s one we wouldn’t touch unless we felt in a way to do it was legitimate. We’re working with an amazing writer as well, Peter Craig,” said MacDonald.

Added Parkes: “It picks up the story 30 years later… 25 years later.”

It’s thought that writer Craig, who adapted the Hunger Games books for the screen, and has been working on the new Top Gun movie, Top Gun: Maverick, is centring the story on the now grown-up son of Joaquin Phoenix’s Commodus

Ridley Scott strikes again with Gladiator, one of the most successful and most-loved films ever made. The movie boasted huge spectacle, epic storytelling and brutal action sequences, and featured Russell Crowe at the peak of his powers. Cinema fans were gripped by the journey taken by Crowe’s Roman general Maximus, who is betrayed after the son of Emperor Marcus kills his father and takes the throne, and the film is just as powerful and impressive now as it was back in 2000

Ridley Scott has revealed how he would bring Maximus back from the dead in a sequel to Gladiator. In the director’s Oscar-winning epic, Russell Crowe’s brave General Maximus survives his betrayal and attempted murder at the hands of Joaquin Phoenix’s scheming Commodus and is metaphorically resurrected as a gladiatorial warrior who rises to become even more popular than the emperor. Maximus goes on to seek revenge against Commodus and ultimately dies in the arena, but not before triumphing over the man who killed his family and destroyed his life.

Spoilers if you haven’t seen GLADIATOR, which, by the way, isn’t too far off from celebrating its twentieth anniversary. How’s that for making you feel old. Back in 2000, Ridley Scott’s historical epic told the story of Maximus (Russell Crowe), a Roman General who found himself reduced to slavery when Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix), the power hungry son of Emperor Marcus Aurelius (Richard Harris), betrayed him and seized control of Rome by murdering his own father. The film was a huge success at the time and even took home a few prestigious awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor at the 73rd Academy Awards.

Although the team over at Screen Junkies insists the early 2000s don’t deserve our nostalgia in their latest honest trailer, they admit the Russell Crowe-led Gladiator was actually pretty awesome. Of course, there are some aspects of the film the YouTube channel couldn’t help but poke fun at, including the fact that its plot is eerily similar to that of a WWE showdown.
