    I would love to see Connie Nielsen in this if it actually gets done.

    So, this to me is a surprise sequel mainly because the first film was a well made film that had a story arc which was completed and left no reason...and pretty much no characters...for any sort of continuation of the story.

    I am a fan of Ridley Scott, I am a fan of his period epics, I think he does a really great job with these. However, his choice of "sequels and prequels" has not been a good thing in my opinion.

    Basically, I think if you are going to make a sequel or prequel there should be a good reason for it to happen. I can't really think of a good reason for this to happen other than it is an attempt to cash in, which is kind of questionable, on Gladiator...which really seems an unlikely film to cash in on.

    That said any films made by Ridley and set in the ancient world are likely to be impressive productions. I just think he should make a film set in the ancient world and not bother to attempt to link it to Gladiator.

    Can Russell Crowe get in shape for this role?

    At this point it hasn't been confirmed that Crowe is even IN the film. After all, his character died at the end of Gladiator.

    Maybe Maximum and Commodus have a rematch in Elysium.

    Perhaps they will dig up the grave of Maximus and find it empty :eek: and we'll learn he has been working as a carpenter in some out of the way little town...

    Or maybe GLADIATOR II - CLASH OF THE ZOMBIES!

    And you know the "Engineers" from Prometheus will show up and Maximus will have to battle a Xeno!

    I think Crowe should play Maximus in his Roger Ailes outfit...

    I'll still see this. I'm a big fan of the original.
