Director Ridley Scott has finalised his plans to make a sequel to Gladiator with Russell Crowe, despite his character having been killed off in part one.
According to the portal hollywood.com, Scott has got a solution to the problem of Crowe dying at the end of Gladiator. He had plans to get a follow-up made in 2003 but gave up on the idea. Now he has gone back to it again and plans to get back Russell Crowe in the sequel.
"I will probably do a sequel to 'Gladiator'. The only problem is Russell Crowe was such a powerful presence and, of course, Maximus dies at the end. We'll have to get Russell back somehow," says the director.
