Samuel L. Jackson in Arena, Full of Fail?

I love Samuel Jackson as an actor, for me, there is no one better at becoming a character and breathing life into it. From Pulp Fiction to Star Wars, we have seen good choices and bad choices but in every single movie the one shining spot is usually Mr. Jackson. So now I see the trailer for his new movie Arena and I am amazed as to why he would do this project. The trailers do not inspire me to want to race out and wait in line to see the movie; I don’t even know if I’ll watch it on Blu-Ray.
The film also stars Kellen Lutz (of Twilight fame) as a young man who is kidnapped and forced to fight in a modern gladiator arena. Jackson stars as the man behind the scenes that makes the whole show go. The gladiators fight online for viewers who will ultimately decide their fate-to live or die. Check out the trailer after the break!
It seems that this is a hybrid of movies already made. I see parts of the Running Man, Mad Max, Matrix and Fear,Com all mixed into the story line. Is this really what Mr. Jackson is putting his name on? Is it possible that this movie will become an underground sensation like Snakes on a Plane? What do you think?
