Denzel Washington and Ridley Scott will reunite on set. The 68-year-old actor is currently in talks to star in the sequel to Gladiator (2000). Ridley Scott won an Oscar for it. Now, the 85-year-old director is preparing to shoot a sequel to his hit, but with other characters, since the main characters of the first film died at the end of the film’s story.
Scott cast Washington in a role opposite Paul Mescal’s character, who will play Maximus’ (Russell Crowe) nephew from the original film. Barry Keoghan, who is also negotiating working conditions in the second “Gladiator” with Paramount Pictures, may also join the sequel.
Washington and Scott already have cooperation. In 2007, they released the crime drama Gangster, in which Denzel played Harlem bigwig Lucas, who was being chased by a cop played by Russell Crowe.
