When the shooting of this movie started, the script was written in only 21 pages. Where an average 110-page script is ready for an average movie.
Director Ridley Scott himself did not know what to shoot the next day. He used to collect scripts by giving leave to everyone. That’s how he made the broken movie.
According to Russell Crowe, this is the most stupid way of filmmaking. Yet when the cast and crew of the film get together, they laugh at it.
They made a movie that became an epic of a warrior. But they did not have their own shield and sword at the time of making it.
Gladiator was released on May 1, 2000. And also won the Academy Award for Best Picture. Gladiator turns 20 years old this year.
