Logan’s Run

Deadline brings word that Warner Bros. Pictures has wrangled “Colony” co-creator/showrunner Ryan Condal to flesh out Simon Kinberg’s treatment for a Logan’s Run remake into a full screenplay. Kinberg (X-Men: Apocalypse, Fantastic Four) will produce alongside Joel Silver (The Matrix, Sherlock Holmes) and Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” Green Lantern). A report from last year indicated that the gender for Logan-5 may have been swapped, but this is potentially no longer the case with the Kinberg/Condal draft.

There have been numerous attempts at remaking the classic film before, previously with BioShock creator Ken Levine penning a draft and before that with Ryan Gosling and his Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn developing a take on the material. Other drafts of the film were written by Alex Garland (Ex Machina, 28 Days Later), Will Beal (Gangster Squad), and Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation).

The 1976 original starred Michael York, Jenny Agutter and Farrah Fawcett. It was based on a 1967 novel by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson. The premise sees a future society that demands the death of everyone upon reaching a certain age. Anyone who veers from that destiny is dubbed a “runner” and is hunted by operatives known as Sandmen. Logan is a Sandman who is forced to go on the run.

Condal and his “Colony” partner Carlton Cuse were recently brought in to rewrite the Dwayne Johnson video game adaptation Rampage for New Line.
