In 2018, Paramount gave Ridley Scott’s “Gladiator 2” the green light, and the film was set up.
However, Ridley Scott did not rush to shoot “Gladiator 2”, but created “The Last Duel”, “House of Gucci” and other films.
In an interview a few days ago, Ridley Scott said that the script for “Gladiator 2” has been written.
Ridley Scott said: “It has been written, and it has been written. We have a good premise, logic and story. However, you can’t do “Gladiator” again. But there are enough elements in the first part and will continue to do the next Department”.

Judging from Ridley Scott’s rhetoric, “Gladiator 2” will continue the story of the previous game, but it will be a completely different film from the original.
It is reported that the script of “Gladiator 2” will be handed over to Peter Craig for creation.
Although Peter Craig is a Hollywood veteran, he has never had a famous work.
His films include “The Town”, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay”, “Blood Father” and the upcoming “Top Gun: Maverick”.
Judging from this choice of screenwriters, it also proves that Ridley Scott does not want “Gladiator 2” to follow the same type of old path.
In terms of actors, the much-anticipated Maximus played by Russell Crowe will not return to the sequel.
In the original “Gladiator”, it can be said that all the characters are dead.

Moreover, there is still a gap of more than 20 years between the two movies. How the story will unfold has always been a mystery.
Earlier, some media speculated that the story of “Gladiator 2” will feature a new character as the protagonist, and the protagonist may be Lucius, the nephew of the Roman emperor Commodus.
However, this has not yet been confirmed.
Currently, “Gladiator 2” does not have any boot information, and the movie’s release date may be set after 2024.
