Pedro Pascal, known for his roles in The Mandalorian and HBO’s The Last of Us, is currently in talks to join the cast of Paramount’s Gladiator sequel. This news comes as Pascal continues to garner attention for his performances in various high-profile projects.

The Gladiator sequel follows the 2001 Best Picture Oscar-winning film, which starred Russell Crowe as Maximus Decimus Meridius, a former general sold into slavery and forced to fight as a gladiator under the rule of Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix), a self-appointed emperor of Rome.

If negotiations succeed, Pascal will join a remarkable cast, including Paul Mescal, Connie Nielsen, Denzel Washington, Joseph Quinn, and Barry Keoghan. Nielsen is set to reprise her role as Lucilla, Commodus’ sister.

The sequel will focus on Lucius (Mescal), the son of Lucilla, played by Nielsen, and the nephew of Phoenix’s Commodus. Djimon Hounsou is expected to return as Juba, a fellow gladiator and former ally of Maximus.

David Scarpa, who collaborated with director Ridley Scott on All The Money In the World and their upcoming Napoleon film, is writing the script. Scott will also produce the movie alongside Michael Pruss through Scott Free and Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher via Red Wagon Entertainment.
