The film, as everyone knows, sees Russell Crowe as Maximus Decimus Meridius, a Roman soldier forced into slavery who swears vengeance on Commodus, masterfully played by Joaquin Phoenix.

The screenplay will be written by David Scarpa, with direction once again going to Rdiley Scott, who will produce with Michael Pruss. Beyond these news, however, nothing is known yet Gladiator 2. We should therefore wait until 2024 before we really know what surprises Scott has in store for us.
