Denzel Washington Joins the Cast of Gladiator 2
A sequel to Gladiator always felt unlikely, but the Ridley Scott-directed follow-up really is happening! Not only that, but it just added a big name: Denzel Washington. This will reunite Washington with Scott, who directed the actor in American Gangster.
We already know that Paul Mescal is leading the film, which means Washington will be playing a supporting character — something he doesn’t do very often. Is it time to get excited about Gladiator 2? It just might be.
