Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with a little news on the long in development remake/reboot/"renewal" of Logan's Run. For a long while Bryan Singer was going to do a new spiffy version of the seminal sci-fi tale about a society whose inhabitants knock off everybody who hits the age of 30.
If they wanted to be really accurate to the material they would have "renewed" Logan's Run in 2006, on its 30th Anniversary.
But that being said, the package they have now is a pretty impressive gathering of talent. BRONSON director Nicolas Winding Refn is attached to direct Ryan Gosling as Logan from a script by Alex "28 Days Later" Garland, says THR's Heat Vision Blog.
I have a big soft spot for the original '70s film, but I see how there could be room in this great big world for a seriously handled remake. The script promises to be truer to the original William F. Nolan book than the Michael York movie, but that's kind of the standard go to line for remakes these days, right? Kinda like back when Superhero movies first started being big and everybody was suddenly a life-long fan of everything being made and would "respect the material." Which did and didn't happen in equal amounts.
But I got a good feeling with that director, writer and star. You?
