Fox’s New Show – The new Fox show has a name and a new character to talk about. Firstly, the show’s going to be called “Gifted”, which is an interesting title. Which I dig. Kind of. The show will also see a new character added into it, as Blair Redford will be playing Thunderbird.
Ridley Scott Teases Surprising Sequel – While talking to Entertainment Weekly, Ridley Scott revealed that he’s talked to Russel Crowe and has wanted to bring him back for a “Gladiators 2” sequel. Talking to Entertainment Weekly, he said;
I know how to bring him back. I was having this talk with the studio — ‘but he’s dead.’ But there is a way of bringing him back. Whether it will happen I don’t know. ‘Gladiator’ was 2000, so Russell’s changed a little bit. He’s doing something right now but I’m trying to get him back down here.
This is an…..interesting choice.
