Penis… So confused…

The TV-to-film adaptation we’ve all been waiting for is finally here. No, not Arrested Development, dumbass, American Gladiators.  I mean, no one in their right mind could watch that show and not think “Hey, this should be a movie!”

The film will be based on the TV show that first aired in 1988 and has been on the air every year except one during the past 20 years. Most recently, NBC aired a primetime installment in 2008. The show has aired in more than 90 countries, with the format adapted for the local market in 14 of them [in the Mexican version they shoot tacos instead of tennis balls -Ed.].

Former Legendary Pictures chief marketing officer Scott Mednick is producing “American Gladiators.” The goal is to create an action story that takes place inside the world Ferraro has created.  “I look forward to creating a compelling story that launches a whole new set of characters,” Mednick said.

Sources close to the project are describing it as “Like Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, except super gay and with giant Q-Tips.”
