About Gladiator II Movie:

Gladiator II is an upcoming historical action-adventure drama film directed by Ridley Scott and written by Peter Craig and David Scarpa. The film stars Paul Mescal, Pedro Pascal, Connie Nielsen, and Denzel Washington.

It is a sequel to the Gladiator (2000). Scott Free Productions produced it with Red Wagon Entertainment for Paramount Pictures. Connie Nielsen and Sir Derek Jacobi are the only returning cast members from the first film.

A sequel to Gladiator was discussed as early as June 2001, with David Franzoni and John Logan set to return as screenwriters. Over the next few years, Ridley Scott provided occasional updates, including the possible involvement of the original film’s lead actor, Russell Crowe, and plot ideas revolving around the Roman afterlife and different historical time periods. However, development was halted when DreamWorks sold the rights to the property to Paramount in 2006.

The film was finally announced in 2018, and Paul Mescal was hired for the lead role in January 2023, with a script by Peter Craig and David Scarpa. The rest of the cast signed on over the following months.

Filming took place between June 2023 and January 2024, with a five-month hiatus due to the 2023 Hollywood labor disputes, including the actors’ strike.

This is the third collaboration between director Ridley Scott and screenwriter David Scarpa, after All the Money in the World (2017) and Napoleon (2023).

Gladiator II is scheduled to be released internationally on November 15, 2024, and later in the United States and Canada on November 22, by Paramount Pictures.

Universal Pictures declined to co-finance the sequel or distribute it overseas as it had the first film because of the sequel’s expensive production budget, leaving only Paramount as the worldwide distributor. The film was previously scheduled for a global release on November 22.
