Do you remember when we told you about the remake of Logan’s Run? The film will be directed by Nicolas Winding Refn and has the potential to star Ryan Gosling. According to Deadline, the Oscar nominated actor might headline the film that previously featured Michael York as the lead in a world where aging past 30 equals death.
Logan’s Run centers on 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.
The reboot has been in development since the mid-nineties when Warner Bros first acquired the rights to the story. Only in the past few years has it experienced a real surge in development moving from Bryan Singer to Carl Rinsch, eventually to Refn.
Gosling is known for his indie films and this will be the first major tentpole project that he’s headlined. We’re ready to see the actor take on something of this caliber. He’s ridiculously talented and deserves to have his pick of big budget films. The new Logan’s Run could be just want the doctor ordered.
