Rainbow and Paramount are Not Born To Be Gladiators

Gladiators have received a lot of heat lately, from the Spartacus television series, even dating back to the Russel Crowe Gladiator film. Heck, Disney even tried to get in on the game a little bit with the animated feature Hercules. Now, Rainbow, Paramount, and Medusa are hoping to top all those before them with their Gladiator parody, an upcoming 3D and CG feature film called Not Born to be Gladiators. The story follows Timo, a young orphan who survived the Pompeii disaster. When the boy is rescued by General Chirone, there’s only one proper place for him; the Gladiator’s Academy of Rome. Not that he’s the greatest Gladiator – Timo wants nothing to do with the events. That is, until Lucilla shows up, and it’s love at first sight. Can Timo triumph over Cassio and win Lucilla’s heart? Will Diana train him properly for the Coliseum? We’ll just have to wait for the film to find out!
