6 injured in an explosion at the filming site of “The Gladiator 2”

An explosion injured 6 members of the “Gladiator 2” film crew.

According to “Mail Online,” a terrifying incident occurred during filming when a large ball of fire hit several crew members. The incident caused chaos on set.

According to “The Sun,” it is expected that a gas leak was the cause of the accident.

Six members of the production crew were hospitalized and treated for non-serious injuries. Fortunately, none of the actors involved in the film suffered any injuries.

According to a statement from a representative of Paramount, the safety and medical teams on the set of the movie in Morocco acted swiftly and provided immediate care to those who were injured. As a result, the injured individuals have already shown signs of improvement.


The movie “Gladiator 2” is a sequel to the 2000 film “Gladiator” directed by Ridley Scott and starring Russell Crowe. The new movie features Diesel Washington and Paul Mescal who were present during an explosion, as well as Joseph Quinn and Connie Nielsen.

The film’s first part is set during the Roman Empire when Caesar Marcus Aurelius attempts to pass on his powers to the army commander. However, his son Commodus kills him before he can do so, and takes over as Caesar of Rome, succeeding his father.

The movie had a budget of $103 million and earned almost $460 million worldwide. It received multiple Academy Award nominations and won both Best Actor, which was awarded to Russell Crowe, and Best Picture.

Scott’s success in creating films like “The Wrestler” is not surprising, considering his prolific career as a filmmaker. He has presented successful works such as “Alien” in 1979, “Blade Runner” in 1982, “Thelma & Louise” in 1991, and “Black Hawk Down” in 2001.

The writer of the screenplay for Gladiator 2 is David Scarpa. He had previously worked with Scott on the 2017 movie All the Money in the World as a writer.

The Gladiator’s first sequel involved several important crew members who were experiencing the new project with Scott. These included production designer Arthur Max, costume designer Jante Yates, and cinematographer Darius Volsky.
