Well they kinda already did except in a different way. It is called "The Condemned". Instead of kids they put criminals on and island to fight to the death. It was a really bad movie if you know what the real BR was like but to the people who didn't it was good to them.

Edit it then . I think it`s edsamac who locks ' rumour threads ' the most .
I remember seeing a couple of threads that seems like a rumour and he locks them .

And ewww . An American remake ? Why can`t they get good idea on their own ? >.>

didn't this already happen? stone cold steve austin on an island with a bunch of convicts and only the last person alive would be released? I'm kidding, but yeah that movie The Condemned was a blatant Battle Royale rip-off. If New Line actually does make a big budget remake it is destined to be horribly shitty. Now if it was independent, and someone like Tarantino directed it, I'd pay to see that. But our culture is way too damn PC to remake this movie, especially because we Americans love shooting our schools up so much.

Well, as someone who has read the book twenty three times since buyying it a year and a half ago, i don't mind as long as they keep it right to the book, no american artistic crap...CUZ AMERICAN 'ART' SUCKS...especialy in the media. However, since most american directors can't read, (claim based of of rationalization to every movie based off a book sucking) I fear greatly for Battle Royale. Also, i heard this a few years ago, they claimed it would be the same guy who butchered Ringu...and some other oones i forgot. I is scareds...

Regardless, i doubt that americans as a general could take the movie seriously...Its just blood and death to the most of us...Of course, the themes will most likely be traded in for an explosion or two on the budget, so the 4% of us who care abotu quiality in movies will be sorely dissapointed, and demand the director commits Seppuku imediatley....

</rant>

I also agree with the guy above me..

They might make a better battle royale since hollywood has a rather good track record of making violent films

After reading all the comments & each persons' ideas...
yea I would agree to most of you that they shouldn't make a remake as they did badly in other remakes that they've done...
BR is the best movie of all time!!! heheh ^^

frankly, its just a rumor, but if it was to be confirmed, then I believe it would turn out horrible. No offense, but America really are not capable of producing renditions of any foreign film. I mean if you watch the ring, grudge, the eye, and so many others, the asian versions are far better. The country of origin usually produces the best production of the film. sad to say.
