Hemsworth approached for ‘Gladiator 2’, to play Russell son

Ridley Scott’s Gladiator, starring Russell Crowe, is one of the most noteworthy films in Hollywood. With 5 Oscars out of 12 nominations to its kitty, the film was a critical as well as commercial success. 

While the 2000 film did garner a massive fanbase and till date is getting additions to it, talks of a sequel have been on rise for the past couple of years. And if the latest developments are to be believed, the speculations have Chris Hemsworth in them now.

No we aren’t kidding. For the unversed, the chances of turning ‘Gladiator’ into a franchise were meek, at least at that point and time. The revenge drama ended with two of its heroes dying on the war ground while they took their revenge and gave the film very much a conclusion. 

But now the grapevine has that the makers are planning to resurrect a two-decade-old film to convert it into a franchise. Below is all you need to know about this exciting update and also what part Hemsworth is eyed for.    —We Got This Covered
