SciFi Geeks Sheet – ‘Logan’s Run’ Jumpstarted

From The Hollywood Reporter

Warner Bros. has been trying to remake the cult classic 1976 dystopian sci-fi movie since 2000 and their latest move is to hire Simon Kinberg to write the film’s story and treatment.  Kinberg is already a producer on X-Men: Apocalypse, Fantastic Four and Deadpool, plus shared writing credits on the former two. He’s also a writer-producer on one of the Star Wars Anthology films and an exec producer on the Star Wars Rebels TV series.

Logan’s Run is set in a future society where people are executed upon reaching a certain age and those that seek to avoid their fate are deemed “Runners.” The protagonist, Logan, is one of those executioners, known as the Sandmen, who ends up on the run after he becomes sympathetic with members of an underground railroad of Runners.
