A sequel to Ridley Scott’s 2000 historical epic Gladiator could happen, and now one of the original movie’s stars, Connie Nielsen, has commented on how production is coming along. She told Collider that Scott plans to make the movie … eventually.
“I know that it’s on the ledger, so let’s just see when Ridley–I know he had to do one or two other movies, and then I think it’s on the ledger after that, but I’m not quite sure where it’s at right now,” she said.
As Nielsen said here, Scott has kept very busy. He recently wrapped production on the period drama The Last Duel starring Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, while he is currently filming the Gucci murder movie with Lady Gaga and Adam Driver. After that, he’s lined up for a Gladiator reunion of sorts with the Napoleon Bonaparte movie starring Joaquin Phoenix in the title role.
