Glen Powell To Star In Edgar Wright's THE RUNNING MAN Reboot

Glen Powell To Star In Edgar Wright's THE RUNNING MAN Reimagining
"Anyone But You" and "Top Gun: Maverick" star Glen Powell is set to star in Paramount's upcoming reboot of the classic dystopian thriller "The Running Man". The film will be directed by Edgar Wright ("Baby Driver", "Shaun of the Dead"), who is also on board as a producer alongside Nira Park and Simon Kinberg. George Linder will executive produce.

The story is based on the novel of the same name by Stephen King, published under the pseudonym Richard Bachman, which was first adapted into the 1987 movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. King's novel is set in a dystopian America in the year 2025, and it follows Ben Richards, a desperate man who participates in violent reality show called The Running Man in order to win enough money to help his gravely ill daughter. The show follows Richards being chased by numerous hunters sent to kill him.

Powell can next be seen in the upcoming action comedy "Hitman" from Oscar-nominated director Richard Linklater, which Powell also co-wrote and co-produced. The film will premiere in theaters May 24, 2024 and be released on Netflix on June 7. He can also be seen this summer in the reboot/sequel "Twisters", which opens on July 19, 2024.
