The film launched Crowe’s mainstream profession and, understandably, he is at all times wished a sequel made and has really tried to do it earlier than, in keeping with the BBC. Apparently he tried to get his good friend Nick Cave (sure, of The Bad Seeds) to write down the script for a sequel. He even tried to get Cave to write down his character again in, despite the fact that he died on the finish of the primary film. Cave was shock at this request:

‘Hey Russell, did not you die in Gladiator 1?’ ‘Yeah, you kind that out.’ So he goes all the way down to purgatory and is shipped down by the gods, who’re dying in heaven as a result of there’s this one god, there’s this Christ character, down on Earth who’s gaining recognition and so the numerous gods are dying in order that they ship Gladiator again to kill Christ and his followers.

The new Gladiator will fortunately don’t have anything to do with Russel Crowe descending to the underworld or killing Christ and his followers. Rather, it’s going to give attention to Lucius, the nephew of Joaquin Phoenix’s Emperor Commodus from the primary movie.
