Director Ridley Scott is in negotiations with Paramount for a follow-up to his Oscar-winning 2000 motion picture Gladiator.

The 80-year-old director and his production company, Scott Free Productions, are working on a sequel that would focus on the Lucius character, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
In the storyline of the blockbuster original, Lucius, who was played by Spencer Treat Clark, was the son of Lucilla (Connie Nielsen) and nephew of Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix), with Maximus (Russell Crowe) coming to his rescue.
Scott, the Oscar-nominated director of classics such as Alien, Blade Runner and Thelma & Louise, would be in line to direct.
The director is currently working on the TNT series Raised By Wolves, which marks his first foray into television.
Screenwriter Peter Craig, whose credits include Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 & 2, Blood Father and The Town, has been linked to the project, according to the publication.
Craig at this time is busy writing another highly-anticipated sequel in Top Gun: Maverick.
The 2000 motion picture, which captured five Academy Awards - including best picture, and best leading actor for Crowe - was a massive box office draw, garnering $460 million in international box office receipts for DreamWorks, with Universal as its distributor worldwide.
Insiders told Deadline that under the potential arrangement, Paramount would oversee development of the movie, Universal would retain an option to co-finance the film, and DreamWorks would not be involved.
