Gladiator 2? Ridley Scott says Maximus would use the "portal of a dying warrior" to come back from the dead

Nope, this is not courtesy of The Onion. Ridley Scott really thinks he can find a way to bring back to life Russell Crowe's Maximus for another go-round at the mighty Roman Colosseum. 

"I know how to bring him back," Scott revealed. "I was having this talk with the studio — 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."

Scott spoke to ME Movies and actually revealed how he would bring back Maximus from the dead for the sequel. Maximus would use the "portal of a dying warrior" to come back from the dead, whatever that means. Nick Cave has written the script for the unlikely sequel, but, according to Scott, it's been sitting on the DreamWorks shelf for close to 10 years now, good luck dusting that off.
