What We Know About Gladiator 2

by Lidia Lucovic

Paul Mescal, who is set to star in Gladiator 2, has provided a positive update on the start of the sequel’s production. Directed by Ridley Scott, Gladiator 2 is a follow-up to the 2000 film Gladiator, which featured Russell Crowe in the lead role. The original movie tells the story of a betrayed Roman general who is turned into a slave and forced to fight as a gladiator, eventually seeking revenge for his family’s murder.

The film was a box office success, earning over $500 million worldwide and receiving five Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Crowe. Now, after a 23-year gap, the sequel is set to begin production, with Mescal optimistic about the filming start date. Initially delayed for two weeks due to Mescal’s role in the play A Streetcar Named Desire, production is now scheduled to commence in a few months, possibly in the summer, according to the actor.

Director Ridley Scott is returning to helm the long-awaited sequel to his 2000 film Gladiator, which grossed over $500 million worldwide and won five Academy Awards. The original movie tells the story of a betrayed Roman general who rises from slavery to avenge the murder of his family. Scott has been working on the sequel for years, with earlier ideas revolving around the afterlife of the original film’s protagonist, played by Russell Crowe. However, the Gladiator 2 story has since shifted to focus on Lucius, the son of Connie Nielsen’s character, played by Spencer Treat Clark in the first film. Paul Mescal is set to play an older Lucius in the sequel. Crowe has confirmed that he will not reprise his role in Gladiator 2, which is now set 30 years later, with Lucius as the Emperor. Earlier script ideas had Lucius searching for his true parentage, and it remains to be seen whether this storyline will carry through to the final version of the film, given the character’s importance to the story.

Although Crowe will not reprise his role, his character, as well as Joaquin Phoenix’s, may make an appearance in Gladiator 2 through flashbacks, thus maintaining continuity with the original film. Despite most of the details being kept secret, it is clear that Scott can deliver the same grandeur and entertainment he provided in the first film and recent works such as The Last Duel and Robin Hood. More information on Gladiator 2 will be revealed as production draws closer, and the film is expected to hit theaters in 2024.
