In an interview with Slash Film, Kinberg expressed his excitement about collaborating with Wright and confirmed that filming will start in 2024.
Kinberg said, “Edgar Wright is one of my favorite directors of all time and one of my favorite people—just a super great guy. Obviously a cinephile. We are working on it actively.” He added, “Wright is actively working on the script with Michael Bacall. And our hope would be that it is a movie that, again, all fingers crossed and luck and everything else go our way, that Edgar could maybe direct next year.”
Kinberg continued, “Well, what’s cool is that Edgar, completely separately, before myself and Paramount started down the journey of figuring out how to get the remake rights, which was complicated, he had tweeted, just on his own—and I follow him obviously on every possible platform—that if there was one movie he would remake ever, it was Running Man.”
‘The Running Man,’ a 1982 science fiction novel by Stephen King (written as Richard Bachman), tells the story of Ben Richards in a dystopian future where the government uses a violent game show called ‘The Running Man’ to control the media and suppress dissent. It was adapted into a 1987 film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Kinberg, Nira Park, and Audrey Chon are producing the film.
Wright’s ‘The Running Man’ will be released in 2025.
