Per Deadline, The Running Man, the SF novel by Richard Bachman/Stephen King that combined a gloomy economic dystopia with the glitz of television game shows, is going to be re-adapted. Arnold Schwarzenegger will be removed as the main character to better reflect the original story’s conception of the main character.
So it looks like Paramount is seeking the financial and critical success of Total Recall (2012) with this project. On the other hand, with Edgar Wright directing and having a hand in the script, I would expect his usual relentless craftsmanship in the filmmaking process, so that nearly every second of the movie either sets up a payoff or pays off a setup.
I wonder if, should they keep the original ending of the novel, it would still be Too Soon?
