We’d have put better odds on surviving the Gauntlet, but Variety says show creator Johnny Ferraro already has a movie version in development. Don’t expect two hours of competition; the film will apparently be an action flick set in the “Gladiators” world.
Which, you know, we sort of thought was the real world, it being a reality show and all.
Bonus: The film will introduce colorful new characters, presumably with nicknames on par with Nitro and Titan. No word yet on specific plot points, or when we can expect a finished product.
Despite the interest, NBC’s new “Gladiators” won’t be returning for a third season.
