Gladiator Sequel On Horizon

A follow up to Oscar-winning blockbuster GLADIATOR is being planned - without RUSSELL CROWE, who was killed off in the original movie.

Crowe, who played GENERAL MAXIMUS DECIMUS MERIDIUS and JOAQUIN PHOENIX's character EMPEROR COMMODUS both died in the first movie.

But DJIMON HOUNSOU, who starred as African slave JUBA, survived and insists the sequel is in development.

He says there is "definitely the desire to do a sequel.

"They're not happy about what they have for now, so they're still working on it."

And the 41-year-old actor is convinced he will grab more of the limelight this time round, adding, "I would probably be in the centre of it as one of the leads."
