HOLLYWOOD – Ridley Scott announces Gladiator 2 will feature Xenomorph from the Alien series.
Everyone loved it when they heard that Ridley Scott is making Gladiator 2. He spoke with the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY about the new film:
Yeah, of course we’re going to bring Russell Crowe back from the dead. He’s going to play Maximus’ twin brother Randy. He’s a lot different from Maximus but he’ll train up because Rome is threatened and we must defend it.
Threatened? By what?
I know. You see one of the reasons I felt reluctant to go back to Ancient Rome is I had decided that I was only going to make films with xenomorphs in them. Prometheus and Alien and all that. Then someone said well why can’t there be Xenomorphs in Rome and then Randy will fight them in the Colluseum? And I said, I like it! And I snapped my fingers. Which is something I only do when it’s a really good idea. Like White Squall. Or GI Jane or something.
What about Nick Cave’s script?
Yeah we wanted to use that but there was one problem.
What was it?
It was shit. The whole thing rhymed. And it would have bits saying Guitar solo and stuff like that.
