It remains a mystery how the ultimate cheeseball game show American Gladiators will be turned into a movie, but screenwriter Peter Iliff apparently has an answer for us. According to Variety he's been hired to write the bigscreen American Gladiators movie, which will feature all those old familiar characters like Turbo and Blaze, but turn them into superheroes.

Because, obviously, inventing new superheroes out of meathead TV competitors is a good idea. I love American Gladiators as much as the next child born in the 80s, but I also love movies with plots that don't seem entirely concocted by committee, and characters that matter. I'm still failing to see how American Gladiators will have either.
