What?!?! Are they that desperate for ideas?!?!?

D’Works Prepping GLADIATOR 2
The long rumored GLADIATOR 2 is getting an actual treatment, says Dreamworks head Walter Parkes. Will Russell Crowe be playing Maximus in the film? “Maximus is dead-dead-dead, no coming back and the story picks up things 15 years later,” said Parkes.
As for seeing Crowe in flashbacks or something similar, says Parkes, “That’s not an easy one, but believe me we’ve tried to mull over all the possibilities.”
