Those of a certain age - or of particularly good taste and excellent knowledge of key ScFi works - will remember Logan's Run as a brilliant slice of dystopian futurism... and Jenny Agutter. OK, and Michael York. So, a remake of the movie strikes as a bad idea unless...
Unless the remake is tightly directed, brilliantly acted and has one hell of a script. So... that means calling on someone from the world of video games. Someone called Ken Levine.
So, Hollywood, desperate for ideas has gone there. According to Deadline
, "Warner Bros has tapped Ken Levine, creator of the Bioshock video game franchise, to write the screenplay for a remake of the 1976 cult classic science fiction film."
As for the film, "The studio has been trying for a long time to get this remake made, and it has been developed by the likes of X-Men helmer Bryan Singer, and more recently Nicolas Winding Refn looked at it as a re-team with Ryan Gosling. A fresh take might be just what the project needs."
Fortunately, Ken will still be making games!
