Nick Cave's Gladiator 2 with Script Apart


Nov 19 2020 • 56 mins

Sean and Neale are joined by special guests Al Horner (from the Script Apart podcast) and Will Kennard to do a deep dive into Nick Cave's script for Gladiator 2; a work of silver screen, could-have-been legend. Hold tight for discussion on Roman Gods, time-travelling battle sequences and a murderous bloody wrestle with 100 alligators, all from the unchained imagination of Nick Cave.

We get into Al's podcast where he discusses the first drafts of scripts with an array of guests which have included Stephen Merchant (Fighting With My Family), Armando Iannucci (In The Loop), Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) and many more.  Find out more about the podcast on the Script Apart site.

Here's a playlist of tunes discussed on the show and Nick Cave songs that pull most strongly from religion:
