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,

The first “Gladiator” movie, which was released in 2000, garnered 11 Oscar nominations and five wins, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Russell Crowe. The film raked in $460 million at the global box office.
The story for the sequel would focus on Lucius, the son of Lucilla (who was played by Connie Nielsen in the 2000 film) who was saved by Maximus (Russell Crowe) by the end of the first film.

According to Deadline, production on “Gladiator 2” could “happen very quickly.” Scott is currently gearing up to film his first television series, the TNT drama “Raised by Wolves.” The “Gladiator” sequel is now being viewed as his next feature directorial effort. The original “Gladiator” opened May 5, 2000 and was a critical and box office sensation. The film earned over $400 million worldwide and was nominated for 11 Oscars, winning for Best Picture and Best Actor.

The film would go on to win Best Picture and Crowe would end up landing the Best Actor Oscar while also grossing $460 million at the worldwide box office.

Film Independent announced Wednesday that it was ending the festival — which had been moved this year from June to September — and replace it with year-round events aimed at building community and broadening its support of visual storytellers. Josh Welsh, president of the nonprofit, admitted that the event had “struggled to thrive.”

In addition to directing as his next project, Scorsese will produce alongside Imperative Entertainment’s Dan Friedkin, Bradley Thomas, Sikelia Productions’ Emma Tillinger Koskoff and Appian Way Productions.

It made a $5 million bid that was millions more than what other suitors were willing to pay back in 2016. Adding the seven-figure sum for Forrest Gump writer Roth to adapt it,
