American Gladiators Ready for the Big Screen

American Gladiators is heading to the big screen. Show creator Johnny Ferraro will oversee the film version,
which will be based on the story-driven, competition TV show that first began airing in 1988 and that has ran for
the past 20 years with no interruptions, with the exception of being off air for a single year.
Producers aim to launch a story with a whole new set of compelling characters. The show was actually originally conceived as a film but was eventually actualized as a series, so it appears that the show will be easy to translate from one medium to the other.
