Eighteen years after the original film wowed audiences worldwide, Gladiator director Ridley Scott has started production on a sequel to the Oscar-winning period drama.

Given the manner in which the original "Gladiator" film ended, Russell Crowe's Maximus will not be leading the sequel, though he is likely to have left an indelible mark on the plot and may well appear in some form.

Ridley Scott is moving ahead with a sequel to critical and commercial blockbuster "Gladiator".

As for his script, it's said that this film will forget trying to resurrect Maximus through ridiculous means and instead focus on Lucius, the now grown-up son of Connie Nielsen's Lucilla, Emperor Commodus' older sister and Maximus' former lover before he met his wife.

Nearly two decades after the original Oscar-winning historical drama hit theaters, Gladiator is coming back to the big screen as Ridley Scott is moving forward with a sequel with Peter Craig (Top Gun: Maverick) attached to write, according to Deadline.

Gladiator had won five Oscars at the 2001 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Crowe.

He told WTF podcast how Crowe "didn't like it" but Cave said he "enjoyed writing it very much because I knew on every level that it was never going to get made". Maximus' family is killed by Emperor Marcus Aurelius's son, Commodus (a breakout Joaquin Phoenix, ) who prioritizes power over even his own family ties.
