Russell Crowe at the Colosseum drives the web crazy

The Gladiator is back in the “old office”, Russel Crowe's selfie at the Colosseum drives the web crazy. The actor is in Rome to shoot the new film The Pope's exorcist. And while he is out walking with his girlfriend and the children, he takes a picture of himself in what was his "old office". Italian pride is a thousand.

The Gladiator is back. We are talking about Russell Crowe, a magnificent "gladiator" in the 2000 film of the same name by Ridley Scott which won five Oscars.

The actor, in Rome to shoot a film, took a selfie at the Colosseum with his family and posted it on Twitter, writing: "I took my children to see my old office". In an ironic way, he refers, in fact, to the set that served as his "office" when he played the valiant general Massimo Decimo Meridio in Scott's blockbuster.

The web has gone crazy. Everyone is relaunching his post. All the media are filming it. All proud of the fact that a monument of cinema history like Crowe is proud of our Rome.

Russell Crowe will be "the exorcist of Rome"

Russell Crowe is in Rome to shoot The Pope's exorcist, in which he plays, as the protagonist, the exorcist Father Gabriele Pietro Amorth. This new film is directed by Julius Avery, director of the 2018 horror film Overlord.

The film is inspired by Father Amorth, an Italian priest and writer known as the exorcist of the diocese of Rome, who died in Rome in September 2016. A highly controversial figure, he was already the subject of William Friedkin's 2017 documentary The Devil and father Amorth. The screenplay is by Chester Hastings and R. Dean McCreary, screenwriters of 2018's Fanboy, and by Evan Spiliotopoulos, who wrote the 2017 remake of Beauty and the Beast.
