'Logan's Run': Sci-fi reboot is back on, lands 'Colony' creator to write script

1 June 2016 11:22 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If it had taken much longer to get this reboot going, the sandmen might have come after it. After upwards of 20 years in development and redevelopment, Logan’s Run is back on again. Deadline is reporting that the remake of the 1976 movie has added Ryan Condal (Colony) to write the script. For those unfamiliar, Logan’s Run is a cult sci-fi film in which people who reach 30 are killed by “sandmen” as a way to control the population. When Logan 5 (Michael York), a sandman, finds out that he’s soon to be “controlled,” he runs. The movie also featured Farrah Fawcett-Majors and Peter Ustinov. The Oscar-winning flick (Special Achievements in Visual Effects) grossed an inflation adjusted $104 million. The reboot will be produced by Simon Kinberg (Deadpool), Joel Silver (Sherlock Holmes) and Greg Berlanti (Arrow). »

Rushes collects news, articles, images, videos and more for a weekly roundup of essential items from the world of film.NEWSThe great French essayist Chris Marker remains on our minds nearly four years after his death—the mystery of his life and his work remains haunting. Which is why we're very intrigued by the news that his adopted daughter has penned a new book about their relationship, Chris Marker (le livre impossible).Okay, Sofia Coppola's A Very Murray Christmas was pretty wretched (though we can't help but love that it was shot in New York's Bemelmans Bar), but we adore Don Siegel's Southern Gothic, Civil War-set, Clint Eastwood-starring kinky horror film (!), The Beguiled—and so are tremendously curious about the news that Coppola will remake that 1971 film with Nicole Kidman.Speaking of films in the works, Terry Gilliam may...finally...start...shooting Don Quixote, produced by Paulo Branco, »
