Russell Crowe’s Contributions To The Gladiator Script Have Been ‘Greatly Exaggerated,’ According To The Movie’s Producer

In the end, the works of David Franzoni, John Logan, and William Nicholson made Gladiator’s script the finished product that it is today. While Douglas Wick dispelled the notion that Russell Crowe had made major overhauls on the film’s story, there are some touches in the finished product the actor can call his own. That just goes to show that the collaborative process of making a gigantic sword and sandals epic, in an era that didn’t know it wanted such a film, can truly make something that echoes through cinematic eternity. You can revisit the action for yourself, as Gladiator is currently available in a 4K UHD Steelbook release, as well as through Digital HD, Blu-ray, and DVD.
