Just last month, news broke that a sequel to 2000’s Gladiator was in the works. Now, we know when we may see it. Paramount announced that it will release Gladiator 2 on November 22, 2024.
We don’t have many details about the project just yet. Ridley Scott will return to direct the sequel. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paul Mescal is in talks to star in the movie. However, his casting isn’t confirmed yet.
Scott produces the film along with Michael Pruss, Doug Wick, and Lucy Fisher. The script comes from David Scrapa.
Set in Roman times, the original Gladiator tells the story of a once-powerful general forced to become a common gladiator (Russell Crowe). The emperor’s son is enraged when he is passed over as heir in favor of his father’s favorite general. He kills his father and arranges the murder of the general’s family, and the general is sold into slavery to be trained as a gladiator – but his subsequent popularity in the arena threatens the throne.
