Barry Keoghan Is In Negotiations To Join Ridley Scott’s “Gladiator” Sequel Opposite Paul Mescal, Fresh From His Oscar Nomination For “The Banshees of Inisherin” And High-Profile Roles In Blockbuster Films “Eternals” And “The Batman.”
If the deal is closed, Keoghan will join fellow 2023 Oscar nominee Paul Mescal (best actor nominee for “Aftersun”) in the Paramount Pictures film. Scott returns to direct and produce the sequel to the 2000 blockbuster “Gladiator,” which was nominated for 12 Academy Awards, won five, including Best Picture, and grossed $460 million worldwide.
In the movie written by David Scarpa, Keoghan will play Emperor Geta. There was a Roman emperor with the same name, but it needs to be clarified how closely the movie will stick to actual events. Mescal will perform the role of Lucius, the son of Lucilla. (Connie Nielsen, Who Is Thought To Be Returning)
