Film is a lot more forgiving than HD is, especially in terms of over-exposure latitude but i highly recommend you shoot some tests of whichever stock you'll be using to get a feel for how much it can do. Even a 100' will tell you a lot!
Oh, also, for Fuji the Eterna 500T is a very nice stock, though grainier generally than the Kodak. I haven't used the Vivid fuji stocks but if you shot them you could conceivably use their 500T Vivid for night and their 160T for day with an 85 and some ND.

Kodak does have one kinda more "character" based and saturated stock out right now, 5260, which is a Vision 2 500T, though it's only available in 35mm. It seems to be the main stock I've been ordering in 35mm though, but doesn't have near the range of their V3 '19.
though I read in an ASC May 2010 issue, in the short takes section of a student short that shot on 7260 for it's grain. They were quite specific about shooting super 16 and the stock being 7260 500T. I have never heard of it being available in super 16.

F-64D is also lovely stuff.
Other than that Reala 500D is well.. what I would choose for anything high speed, it has Fuji's 4th colour layer found in their C-41 still films, the only motion picture film to have it, it'll balance out mixed/artificial lighting.
There's also that 500 stuff from Kodak that is said to 'not have' a colour balance to it.
