Bryan Singer told Sci-Fi Wire that he has reunited with his "The Usual Suspects" writer Christopher McQuarrie to draft a script for his long-delayed "Logan's Run" remake, which was put on hold while Singer finished his upcoming "Superman Returns".
"We're finishing the script and I'm going back to a lot of the development work I've done, and I've started to go ... from where I left off. I sort of left that off when I went to make Superman, and now I'm returning to it. I'll show it to you. ... It's pretty neat. ... animatics and things like that" said Singer at WonderCon this weekend in San Francisco.
Singer added that he's eyeing a 2006 production start for a proposed 2008 release of the movie, which would update the classic SF book and 1976 film version - "I'm taking concepts in the book and the movie, the 1976 movie, and some of my own concepts and merging them together for my interpretation. That's as best as I can say. It takes place in a unique environment, one we haven't seen in a movie before. In a mainstream movie before. ... If we do that, it would happen soon. It would happen as early as this year, the end of this year. I guess it would be for ... When would Logan's Run be for? ... 2008".
"Logan's Run" is based on William Nolan's seminal SF book, about a futuristic society in which people are killed at the age of 21; that was adapted into the 1976 film starring Michael York, in which the age was upped to 30.
