Gladiator 2 Producer Says Ridley Scott’s Working On It

Gladiator 2 appears to be gaining increasingly more traction. The long-gestating sequel has surprisingly been within the works for years and only a week in the past, producer Walter F. Parkes lastly revealed when the second film will happen.

Now that we all know the setting although, when is the movie going to occur? Properly, producer Doug Wick has been speaking just lately concerning the challenges of getting everybody’s schedules to line up in addition to getting the story proper in order that it doesn’t tarnish the legacy of the primary film, and right here’s what he needed to say:

“Ridley would like to do it. It’s actually all about getting one thing on paper,” Wick confirmed to “Everybody [involved with the original] loves the film an excessive amount of to ever think about cheaply exploiting it and making one thing that’s a shadow of it. It’s simply actually a transparent inventive downside, engaged on a script, and if we are able to ever get it to a spot … Ridley’s engaged on it, it’s actually only a query of whether or not we are able to get it to a spot the place it feels worthy to make it. It’s an actual problem.”

“But it surely’s additionally an actual writing downside, too. Like several good film, Gladiator works by the pores and skin of its enamel, the place this combat film finally ends up including up that approach, and so, once more, to take one of the best of what the viewers is connected to, however make it recent in some new incarnation, it’s actually difficult. And, in fact, the main man is useless. In case you do Godfather, you say, ‘Okay, the viewers loves these stars on this wardrobe,’ and also you convey again the outdated workforce.”

Based mostly on these feedback, it doesn’t sound like they’re wherever near ending the script. In the event that they’re so apprehensive about making one thing to reside as much as Gladiator although, why make it within the first place?

The truth that Scott appears desirous to do it’s also shocking. In any case, in addition to being the second-highest grossing film of 2000, Gladiator received 5 Oscars together with Greatest Actor for Russell Crowe and Greatest Image. It was additionally a comeback for Scott, who had had a shaky interval within the ‘90s. So it actually set a excessive bar that shall be robust to match.

Gladiator 2, Sequels

The plain setback with making a sequel is, in fact, that Maximus (Crowe) dies on the finish of the primary movie. Crowe can also be 20 years older and never precisely in the identical bodily form he was again then.

In keeping with Wick although, the actor joked {that a} sequel might work after the film’s huge opening weekend all these years in the past.

“Russell’s agent referred to as me after the opening weekend, stated, ‘I’ve obtained an ideal concept. They take the physique across the nook of the sector, Russell will get off the stretcher and says, “Hey, it labored,” they usually high-five,’” Wick recalled. “That will be the start of the following film. He was pitching that it was a pretend dying so Russell might come again and do it.”

Gladiator is a celebrated movie and spawned a rejuvenation of the sword-and-sandals style. It was even going to get a re-release this summer season for its 20-year anniversary. The considered Gladiator 2 simply sounds odd, although, and it’s pointless. Scott and Crowe form of already made their follow-up interval epic, too, and it was referred to as Robin Hood. Keep in mind that film? No? I didn’t suppose so.
