After the American Gladiators made a huge television comeback on NBC with all new events and red, white and blue clad, muscle-bulging athletes, the next logical step was to somehow adapt it into a feature length motion picture as we reported earlier this year. Now it looks like the project is making some headway as Variety reports screenwriter Peter Iliff, (Point Break, Patriot Games) will write the film based on the television show which first premiered in the late 80's, however the story will see the titular characters as superheroes instead. Just when I thought Hollywood had run the well dry, here comes a drought. Read on!
This is about as ridiculous as it comes. This is an idea that would've been green-lit as a Saturday morning cartoon in the 80s. It's one thing to have the gladiators from the show move onto their own film careers (see Gina Carano, aka sexy American Gladiator known as Crush, who will be leading a Steven Soderbergh flick), but it's entirely another to base a film on a show based solely on candid athletic competition and turn it into a superhero movie. If you're going to do anything involving American Gladiators and superheroes, take the maniacal Don "Wolf" Yates and turn him into Kraven the Hunter from Spider-Man. You're welcome!

I was thinking the same thing Bastiaan. If they decide to actually do this, I honestly don't think it will be such a great movie at all. I hope Gina doesn't do it.
