Warner Bros. Pictures remake of “Logan’s Run” looks to be back up and running says The Hollywood Reporter.
Commercial director Joseph Kosinski will make his directorial debut on the sci-fi thriller, which is being written by Tim Sexton and produced by Joel Silver.
Following William F. Nolan’s 1967 novel closer than the previous 1976 Michael York film did, 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.
Kosinski came into Warners with a presentation that included graphic art and animated previsualization which aims to create realistic environments at a modest budget.
Bryan Singer previously signed on to develop and direct in 2004 before he went over to do “Superman Returns”.
