    hey everyone just watched the classic Running Man and i thought about what if they would remake it now who would u cast. this is my cast for the remake, as you can see i thought about letting the WWE try and remake becuase the Running man show is in the future and it is alot like Wrestling into days world. please add your own for fun. thank you. my idea of the movie would be more like the video game MANHUNT and i would get rid of the whole future thing and set it in now and get rid of the whole risitance fighters. i would also had two or more new stalkers

    THE MAIN PLAYERS

    BEN RICHARDS- THE ROCK
    Damon Killian- Regis Philbin or Vince McMahon
    Amber Mendez -Michelle Rodriguez or Rosario Dawson


    THE STALKERS
    Captain Freedom- Hulk Hogan
    FireBall- Booker- T or Ron Simmons
    Dynamo- Goldberg
    Buzzsaw- Kevin Nash
    Subzero- Brock Lesnar
    NEW STALKERS
    Goliath- The big Show
    Dr. Payne- Mick Foley
    Patient X- Kane
    Gravedigger- Undertaker
    :) :supes: :marv:

    Ugh. Running man was a terrible adaptation of a great Stephen King novel. Scratch the original movie, and let it die, imo.

    They should make a faithful adaptation instead. It would make for a terrific tale to watch unfold on the big screen.

    Oh, and no Arnold this time around. Bring someone with a normal shape, not mister Universe, heh.

    The 80's will be remembered as the only decade where heroes were big muscle steroid/wrestler guys.

    Such a laughable concept.

    I'm mixed when it comes to Running Man.

    As a King fan, I hate the fact they messed up the concept of the orginal novel...but as an Arnie fan, it's so awesome.

    I'm so confused. :(

    WWE are suppose to be doing a movie with Austin in the lead role, called The Condemned which has a similar plot to The Running Man where Austin would play a cop on death row in a future society and is given the chance for freedom if he takes part in a reality show where he has to escape from some people trying to kill him.

    I read that Christopher Reeve orginally turned down the role of Ben Richards, might of been a whole different movie.

    If I recall correctly, the book ended with Ben Richards
    crashing an airplane into the network's skyscraper headquarters.
    I doubt they'd attempt this.
