"Bioshock" Creator To Helm "Logan's Run"

Ken Levine, the creator of the popular "Bioshock" franchise, has taken over writing duties on the long-in-development new adaptation of "Logan's Run" at Warner Bros. Pictures.

The story is based on the 1967 novel by William F. Nolan and George Clayton John, which itself is best known for the 1976 film adaptation.

Set in the year 2116, the story is set in a domed city society where all people are willingly executed at the age of 21 as a means of population control.

Those who flee become "runners" whose lives are ended in far less pleasant ways. Bryan Singer, Nicolas Winding Refn and Joel Silver have all attempted to get the film version off the ground in recent years without much success.

Levine was a former screenwriter and playwright before he became an influential video gaming figure.
