It's been more than 20 years since we first heard Russel Crowe's Maximus Decimus Meridius mention his now-iconic line in theaters.

2000's epic historical drama, Gladiator, was both a commercial and critical success. 

Now, it appears that it's about to get a sequel. 

The director, Ridley Scott, claims that he's set to work on Gladiator 2 soon. 

Once he's done working on Kitbag, a film starring Joaquin Phoenix, Scott will move on to Gladiator 2. 

To help further things alone, Peter Craig is also working on the sequel's script. 

Back in 2019, the producers explained that the sequel would be set twenty years after the original. 

Suffice to say, fans are excited to hear more details about Gladiator 2. 

Given Scott's busy schedule and Paramount's recent delay, don't expect Gladiator 2 to come soon.

Most likely, Gladiator 2 will premiere in 2023 if not later.
