Many people believe that Hollywood, for the most part, is out of new ideas. Recently the big movie studios have been rumaging through popular board games and action figure properties for the next big blockbuster film. And now we learn that former Legendary Pictures chief marketing officer Scott Mednickis is developing an idea based on the television show American Gladiators.
An American Gladiators movie? Really?
The film will be set inside the world created in the tv show and will present “a compelling story that launches a whole new set of characters.” I can’t even imagine what an American Gladiators movie would be like. On one hand I would love to see a remake of The Running Man, but I doubt that American Gladiators would be anything but PG.
