Battle Royale is an uncompromising and brilliant vision of the future. This seems a bit, well, wrong…
See what you’ve done Hunger Games?
Seemingly CW are contemplating a television series based on Koushun Takami’s novel Battle Royale where kids are forced to compete by their school to kill other kids to survive.
This is a really bloody violent movie and it would seem HBO would be a more suitable home if they want to stretch the boundaries of taste and violence and let’s face it, this would be violent television by anyone’s standards.
Exactly how they are going to do it remains to be seen.
