Ridley Scott's epic blockbuster Gladiator is set to be
made into musical staged in London's West End. The Oscar-winning
film, which starred Hollywood star Russell Crowe, will be adapted
for the stage by William Nicholson, who wrote the original
screenplay. The original Hans Zimmer score will be used, but Crowe
will not be reprising his role as Maximus Decimus Meridius. Brian
Stokes Mitchell will take on the part instead.
