Ridley Scott wants to return to ancient Rome with a Gladiator sequel. A potential sequel to the Oscar-winning 2000 film has been rumbled about for years, but now it appears Scott is finally moving forward with the project, with hopes to direct. The sequel will follow Lucius, the nephew of Joaquin Phoenix‘s character from the first film. The original film featured Russell Crowe as a former Roman general who becomes a gladiator after being betrayed.
