20 Mar – It was revealed that Denzel Washington is currently in talks to join the cast of the upcoming "Gladiator" sequel.

The sequel is set for release tentatively on 22 November 2024.
Meanwhile, Washington is currently busy filming the third instalment of "The Equalizer". His recent credits include "The Tragedy of Macbeth" and "The Little Things".
