Paul Mescal was spotted soaking up the sun in Malta with his co-star Pedro Pascal just days ago.

The pair are currently working on the Gladiator sequel and had been filming on the European island.

But now it looks like they have jetted to a new location to continue creating the highly anticipated movie.

Paul was spotted with the cast and crew of the film in Morocco in recent days.

The picture of the star-studded cast was shared by a restaurant called Kasbah Des Sables in the province of Ouarzazate.

Paul was looking relaxed in the picture in a pair of olive-coloured trousers, a black shirt and a pair of Adidas runners.

He was joined by Pedro Pascal and the director of the film, Ridley Scott.

The film is set 25 years after the events of the original Russell Crowe lead blockbuster which catapulted the New Zealander to superstardom.

Gladiator won five Academy Awards in a variety of categories, including Best Picture and Russell picked up the Best Actor gong.

While Paul is no stranger to the Oscars after being nominated for his role in Aftersun, this movie marks the first time Paul will take on a leading role in a major Hollywood studio production.

While we don’t have an exact date on when Gladiator 2 will come to cinemas, it looks likely that it will come out in 2024.
