Few days ago we wrote that Carl Rinsch is in talks to direct the Logan’s Run remake for Warner Bros, the remake that has been in development for over a decade.
But today we have a little 3D update to share with you. Yeah, yeah, according to the film’s producer Joel Silver, they plan on the feature being shot in 3D.
The original film, directed by Michael Anderson, was released in 1976, and revolves around a man known as Logan 5, who is trying escape a mandatory death sentence on his 30th birthday. The story 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.
The movie is based on the 1967 novel by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson, and starred Michael York, Richard Jordan, Jenny Agutter and Farrah Fawcett.
As we said, Logan’s Run remake has been in development since the mid-nineties when Warner Bros first acquired the rights to the story. So, this 3D remake is definitely no surprise, and here’s what Silver had to say about that decision:
“I’d like to make Logan’s Run in 3D. It’s a movie I’ve always been intrigued with, excited by. We’re writing a script now and that should be a big 3D movie and it should be devised and shot in 3D. I think if we can pull it together, then it would be.”
With every new detail about this remake, we’ll be back. Make sure you stay tuned!
