By his own admission, Russell Crowe is somewhat “uncomfortable” with the very imminent arrival of Gladiator 2. Scheduled for release next November, this sequel, still by Ridley Scott, takes place several years after the events of the first film.

Played by Paul Mescal, Lucius, the son of Lucilla (Connie Nielsen) and nephew of Emperor Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix), has grown up and decides to follow in the footsteps of the general turned gladiator he admired so much. And if Maximus Decimus Meridius is flattered that his memory is honored, he still wants to give his point of view!

“I’m a little uneasy about them doing another one – because, of course, I’m dead and I have no say in what’s done,” he said. he conceded at the microphone of the podcast Kyle Meredith With…. “But with some of the things I’ve heard, I’m like, ‘No, no, no, that doesn’t fit with the moral character traits of this particular character.’ But I can’t say anything since I’m six feet under. Well, we’ll see what happens. » However, the Australian actor admits that it is difficult for him to be objective on this subject.

A little melancholy

“I think back to how old I was when I made this film and everything that followed, the doors this film opened for me,” Russell Crowe continued, wistfully. So to be completely honest, there is certainly a touch of melancholy, and even a touch of jealousy in me. I remember when I was still nervous. »

It nevertheless remains that this Gladiator 2 is eagerly awaited. In addition to the star of the moment Paul Mescal in the leading role, the cast also includes Denzel Washington as well as the star of Stranger Things, Joseph Quinn. We just have to hope that Ridley Scott won’t serve us something reheated!
