Will Beall (ABC’s “Castle”) is in negotiations to write the script for Warner Bros. Pictures’ Logan’s Run, says Heat Vision. Beall’s Gangster Squad just received the green light at the studio as well.
Nicolas Winding Refn is attached to direct Logan’s Run with Ryan Gosling starring. Joel Silver and Akiva Goldsman are producing.
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.
Alex Garland wrote the previous draft of the new film.
