Grappling TV game show AMERICAN GLADIATORS is heading to the big screen, in a new live action movie.
The show, in which members of the public take on muscle-bound gladiators in a series of events, debuted in the U.S. in 1988 and has since appeared in more than 90 countries.
Creator Johnny Ferraro, who claims he first conceived the idea as a movie, is now fulfilling his ambition with the help of 300 producer Scott Mesnick.
Mesnick tells Daily Variety, "I look forward to creating a compelling story that launches a whole new set of characters."
The cast had teased something big was coming and all was revealed on Monday night.
The couple have recently found themselves dragged into the Brangelina divorce and even forced to deny split rumours.
The rapper teams up with Apple Music on his latest project.
