Waititi: “It made sense to see his name. And I’ve always wanted to work with him or involve him in some of my projects. He was very close to making a football movie, but I couldn’t get the agenda to work for him. And we became friends before Love and Thunder. I wanted to work with him and then I went to him while we were in Sydney and I said ‘Listen, man, I know it will look like we’re just trying to get you to re-play the role of Gladiator… but this is going to be a lot more fun. “
