Poll: Thumbs up to another round of ‘Gladiator’ if Ridley Scott is involved

Poll: Thumbs up to another round of ‘Gladiator’ if Ridley Scott is involved
We asked whether you would be excited to see a planned sequel to ‘Gladiator,’ the Best Picture picture winner from 2000 that earned Russell Crowe his lone Oscar as Best Actor. Alas, his warrior Maximus died at the end of the first movie, which will likely cancel out its star’s return.

However, most respondents seem to care more about director Ridley Scott‘s involvement than what actor is in the ring, with 54 percent saying they would definitely see it if the British filmmaker was behind the camera. Still, 40 percent felt that there is no reason to do a sequel without Crowe returning.

Rotten Tomatoes reports the sequel would take place years later and center upon Lucius Verus, the son of Lucilla (Connie Nielsen in the first movie), and the nephew of the late emperor Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix).

That brings up another question. Who would be a good replacement as the hero,

Production is expected to commence in November. Daniel Craig (Casino Royale) will portray the lead detective in charge of solving the murder.

Should Plummer join the film, he will star alongside Craig, Chris Evans (Avengers: Infinity War), Lakeith Stanfield (Sorry to Bother You), Michael Shannon (The Shape of Water), Don Johnson (Miami Vice), Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween), Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049) and Toni Collette

Will you be entertained by a sequel to ‘Gladiator’ directed by Ridley Scott? (Poll)

Will you be entertained by a sequel to ‘Gladiator’ directed by Ridley Scott? (Poll)
After reviving the “Alien” franchise, it looks as if Ridley Scott is ready for another round of “Gladiator.” The 2000 film that was nominated for 12 Oscars and won five, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Russell Crowe as Roman warrior Maximus, was responsible for a boom in historical epics as the 21st century dawned, including “Troy,” “King Arthur,” “Alexander,” Scott’s own “Kingdom of Heaven” and “Robin Hood.” There was even a gladiator scene in “Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones.”

As Deadline originally reported, Paramount is gung-ho to revive the later-day “Spartacus” with a screenplay by Peter Craig (“The Town”). However, it isn’t clear yet what path the follow-up will take, considering that Maximus dies at the end of the original film.

But if anyone can work a miracle, it is Scott, considering he was able to save his film about the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III,

Firing Kevin Spacey and Scrapping Gore Cost Netflix Almost $40M

Netflix dropped Kevin Spacey's completed Gore Vidal biopic and lost $39 million. The decision also resulted in years of hard work getting thrown away. Gore was to be Spacey's first major starring film role since taking on House of Cards in 2013, but after allegations of sexual assault became public, Netflix decided to sever ties with the actor completely. A month after the allegations came to light, he was fired from House of Cards and it was announced that the streaming giant was ditching the completed Gore film.

The Gore biopic is based off of Jay Parini's biography, Vidal, Empire of Self: A Life of Gore Vidal, which was written over the course of several years with input from Vidal himself. Director Michael Hoffman took a lot of time to develop and craft the film, only to have Netflix scrap it. Simply taking Kevin Spacey out of the film was

A Young Man Suspects His Dad is a Serial Killer in Trailer For The Clovehitch Killer

A trailer has been released for a new serial killer thriller called The Clovehitch Killer, which tells the story of a young man who starts to suspect his dad is a serial killer after coming across some unsettling evidence while rummaging through his dad’s shed.

The movie looks like it’s going to be pretty intense as the boys dad starts to suspect his son is on to him. I imagine that this story isn’t going to end well for anyone. The movie stars Charlie Plummer (from Lean on Pete, The Dinner, All the Money in the World) as the boy Tyler and Dylan McDermott as his dad. Here’s the synopsis:

Tyler Burnside (Charlie Plummer) is a Boy Scout, a volunteer at his local church, and the dutiful son of an upstanding, community leader dad (Dylan McDermott). Only one thing troubles the quiet Kentucky town he lives
