Meanwhile, Pascal is currently involved in the production of 'Gladiator 2', the much-awaited sequel to Ridley Scott's 2000 epic. The film, which also stars Paul Mescal, Denzel Washington, Connie Nielsen, and Derek Jacobi, encountered a temporary pause due to the SAG-AFTRA strike. Yet, it resumed its filming on December 8, following an agreement in November. The sequel to the 2000 film, which explores the afterlife of Maximus, is a subject of much anticipation among fans and critics alike.

Stunt Accident Earlier in Production

The Gladiator 2 set was previously marred by a stunt accident in Morocco that caused injuries to several crew members. Though not life-threatening, the incident raised concerns about safety measures on the set. Paramount Pictures, the production company behind the sequel, confirmed that the accident occurred during a planned stunt sequence but did not disclose further information about the incident. As of now, it remains unclear if Pascal's current condition is in any way related to the previous accident on the set.
