The CW is reportedly in talks to bring "Battle Royale" to American TV as a series.

There were plans to bring "Battle Royale", the 1999 Japanese novel and movie property (2000) about teens in a harsh government survival program, to the USA as a movie in the past. Those plans seemed to have been put into development hell after the Hunger Games movie successfully launched.
Things are at a very early stage of negotiations and no deal is in place, but there may be an hour-long, English language drama based on Koushun Takami's work headed to American televisions in the future.
