The Swedish Gladiators are back in 2011.
TV show American Gladiators will become a feature film. Creator Johnny Ferraro and Scott Mednick have teamed up to oversee the big screen spinoff. The show, which was initially conceived as a movie, will be turned into an action narrative taking place within the world Ferraro devised.
Gladiators, a sports entertainment television show, has been one of the most defining game shows of the 90's in the UK, as well as across the globe. Athletic members of the public battle as Contenders against the shows very own mighty Gladiators to earn points in an array of events that tests their speed, strength, stamina and skill.
The Contender with most points earns a 0.5 second head-start for each point difference in a race over the dreaded Eliminator course. The first to finish wins the episode and moves onto the next round with the hope of being crowned series champion!
