These days, it can seem like Hollywood's got so many sequels on the slate, it's practically impossible to keep track of them all. Never fear, though, here are a few of the upcoming sequels, prequels and spin-offs that might have slipped under your radar.
Many fans thought the day would never come, but it looks like Ridley Scott is finally making a sequel to the story of Maximus Decimus Meridius, nearly 20 years after the original Gladiator hit theaters. Of course, ol' Maximus is busy walking through wheat fields in heaven, so what's the sequel actually going to be about?
According to producer Walter F. Parkes, the film is going to begin about 25 to 30 years after the original ended. And according to The Hollywood Reporter, part two will focus on Lucius, the son of Maximus' old flame, Lucilla. While Spencer Treat Clark played Lucius in the first film, we don't know if he's going to reprise his role for Gladiator 2. What we do know is that Peter Craig is writing the screenplay, and he's a guy with some pretty impressive credits to his name, including The Town, both Mockingjay movies, and the upcoming Top Gun sequel. And with Scott himself behind the camera, you can be sure it'll be nothing if not entertaining.
Based on the comic book series by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, the Kingsman films have followed the adventures of Gary "Eggsy" Unwin, a London street thug who joins an organization of gentlemen spies. Keep watching the video to see the upcoming sequels no one is talking about yet!
