Are You Not Entertained?

Finally, there's gonna be Gladiators back in the mix.

Stressing that the fights would not be a Disneyland-like attraction, but a serious project to bring the sporting heroes of antiquity alive, Broccoli also dismissed fears that they might appear too crude.

"The gladiators themselves were vulgar. They were sweaty, they stank and they swore. Why not show them as they really were?" Broccoli said.

If I can put the fact that this dude's name is Broccoli aside, I want to go on record right now as saying I support this completely. But I'm thinking we get Russell 'Rusty' Crowe and Ninety-something Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas in there to work out who was the better silver screen gladiator.
