Logan’s Run Gets A Bioshock

Logan’s Run, the new incarnation of the 1967 novel by William F. Nolan and George Clayton John, looks to have found a new screenwriter in the shape of Bioshock creator Ken Levine.  While Levine’s name won’t be immediately familiar to film fans he is revered in the gaming industry having created and written the Bioshock franchise.  Logan’s Run is said to be something of a passion project for Levine who has been hired by Warner Bros. to pen the script.  The story of Logan’s Run is set in the year 2116 in which people do not age beyond 21 and voluntary commit suicide.  If they refusal to go on ‘Carousel’ then they are hunted down and given a more painful death.  The story follows Logan, a hunter who reaches the maximum age of 30 but decides to go on the run and discovers the truth behind the dystopian society he lives in.  The book was adapted to screen in 1976 and starred Michael York and Jenny Agutter and went on to becomes a cult classic.  Recently the new incarnation of the film has seen the likes of Bryan Singer and Nicolas Wending Refn circling the project with the plan of casting Ryan Gosling in the title role.  There’s no word on who might be directing the film for now but Levine has experience bringing to life dystopian realities thanks to the Bioshock games so might be just the creative injection that Logan’s Run needs.  Source – Deadline 

Alex Moss Editor

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email: alex.moss@filmjuice.com
