AceShowbiz – Film bosses are in talks for a potential “Gladiator” sequel, according to the film’s leading lady, Connie Nielsen – and she wants a part.
As the Oscar-winning film’s director, Ridley Scott, and his cast and crew celebrate the 20th anniversary of the 2000 release, the actress has revealed she would be interested in reprising her character, Lucilla, in a follow-up.
Discussing the the original with Scott as part of an Entertainment Weekly interview, Nielsen explained studio bosses have greenlighted the project, adding, “It’s just a question of which film is coming first in Ridley’s very tight schedule.”
“I would be interested in doing it (the film), for sure,” Connie adds. “I mean, it’s obviously a wonderful project, so of course I would be interested.”
It’s not clear if Russell Crowe has been approached to reprise the title character, which earned him his first Best Actor Oscar.
