Director Ridley Scott has confirmed he plans to make a Gladiator sequel with Russell Crowe, despite Crowe's character having been killed off.

Scott intends to write around the problem of Crowe dying at the finale of his 2000 smash hit.

He had originally tried to get a follow-up made in 2003, before abandoning the idea, but things are now back on track.

Scott says, "I will probably do a sequel to Gladiator. The only problem is Russell Crowe was such a powerful presence and, of course, Maximus dies at the end.

"We'll have to get Russell back somehow."
