“It’s an immense honor — it’s not lost on me,” he said. “That film is hugely important to a lot of people across the world. And for the great Ridley Scott to kind of pass the baton on to me is something that, like, my drama school self or even the version of myself that was 15 watching the film for the first time, could never have imagined.”

“I think the main thing that I’m excited about is kind of the homage that it pays to the first one, but also the kind of new direction that the film takes,” he shared. “I think it’s well balanced in that regard — in terms of the physical action of the film and the balance of the kind of political aspects of the film as well.”

Overall, Gladiator II is aimed to be another classic, “We are excited to kind of add the next installment to a film that has been and will continue to be incredibly popular” he added.

Gladiator II is set to open against the first chapter of Universal Pictures’ Wicked. Check out the poster and trailer below.
