CW Eyes 'Hunger Games'-Esque Japanese Feature 'Battle Royale'

The youth-focused network is exploring rights to the 2000 Japanese feature film Battle Royale, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The controversial movie, which like Hunger Games, is set in a dystopian future in which high school students are forced to fight one another to the death and are based on Koushun Takumi's novel of the same name.
Weren't they trying to do this with 'The Selection'?
