Gladiator sequel ‘is being written’ says Ridley Scott

Director Ridley Scott has revealed work is well underway on the much talked about sequel to Gladiator.

First, he’s working on his Napoleon epic Kitbag, and then his focus will turn to the Gladiator sequel, Scott told Empire.

The film is expected to focus on Lucius, the son of Connie Nielsen’s Lucilla and nephew of Joaquin Phoenix’s power-hungry and immoral Commodus.

Both Lucilla and Lucius were saved by Crowe’s Maximus from the embittered Roman emperor before the gladiator passed on to be with his own slain family.

It’s expected to be set 25 years after the original.
