So will this be a reality show where stupid kids kill each other off each week? Perhaps start off with the cast of The Jersey Shore?
I've been a fan of Battle Royale since my exchange trip to Japan in 2001. I don't want an American TV adaptation. The Japanese film adaptation didn't do the source material justice; there's just no way an Americanized and dumbed-down television adaptation would work. Especially considering how many ignorant people would brush it off as a copycat show trying to ride the coattails of The Hunger Games (which, in a way, it absolutely would be). I could see a series of Hollywood movies being able to pull-off the psychological complexity (I love reading about each student's reaction to their predicament) and the incredible violence involved, but not a TV show.
