Strangely enough, my first thought was not, "Better you than me," but was instead an instant idea for a spin-off. Which inspired me to bring you today's list.
Five Movie-to-Reality TV Spin-offs
1. Twilight: Bitches - This one I imagine to be a lycanthropic Real Housewives kind of thing full of "Girl, no you didn't!" followed by fighting. But real fighting where they're out at a bar and some drunk girl slaps one of the TBs, she changes into a werewolf, and the real fighting ensues. Okay, so it's not a perfect formula, but still. Obviously, this one would be a fake reality show...or would it?
2. Running Man (or Gamer if you're too young for the 1987 classic) - This one should be a game show. Part Survivor, part paintball war, part American Gladiator. Drop contestants—either individuals or two- or three-person teams—into an arena. Maybe a ghost town. They have a goal to accomplish aside from being the last person standing.
3. Hunger Games Lite - Similar to the last one, except contestants are prisoners working for parole. I suppose that would make this one more similar to the concept of Gamer.
4. The Mall - Take the setting of Dawn of the Dead. Add in a healthy dose of Saw. The psychological thriller part, not the serial killer/everyone dies part. Drop a group of strangers into a mall. Leave clues for puzzles to be solved. They have to work as a group. Maybe someone has to "sacrifice" themselves for the greater good. If they make it out before the timer runs out, they win a prize. If they don't, we release the zombified crowd into the mall, turning it from a game show to a Zombie Run 5K.
5. Runaway Train - Taking cue from Murder on the Orient Express, the contestant boards a train and takes a seat. A few minutes into the ride, they are are told there is a murder or a theft that they have to solve before the train arrives at its destination (i.e. before the timer expires). The title is subject to change, but you can use the Soul Asylum song of the same name as the theme.
Another one I thought of was the basis of the film Exam. I posted about it on Saturday with a set of Netflix reviews (it's the third one down). Worth a watch, I think.
Any others you'd be itching to see if they became a (fake) reality/game show?
