Crowe Plots for Gladiator 2
October 30, 2006
Russell Crowe has revealed he would love to make Gladiator 2. The 42-year-old actor, who played Roman warrior Maximus in Oscar-winning film Gladiator, says he and director Ridley Scott are always thinking up sequel ideas - despite Crowe’s character dying at the end of the first movie.
Crowe told Britain’s Daily Telegraph newspaper: “The idea of doing a Gladiator 2 comes up all the time but we’ve made it very difficult for ourselves by killing off my character in the first one.
“We have an idea but it never seems to have sufficient credibility. It just comes back at us and says, ’Are you kidding?’ Maybe we are kidding. Maybe we just enjoy talking about it.”
There have been many rumours about possible plots for Gladiator 2 including a prequel plotline, or a sequel with a descendent of Maximus as the lead character or even Crowe’s character coming back as a ghost.
Meanwhile, Crowe says he agreed to star in new movie A Good Year because it was set in the South of France. Crowe said: “I wanted to go to Provence and I wanted to take my family to a location that knew my wife would enjoy. It just appealed to me."
