Warner Bros. is essentially going back to the drawing board on its long-gestating remake of the 1976 cult sci-fi film Logan’s Run. The project was initially developed for Carl Rinsch to direct, but he eventually moved on to helming the big budget, production troubled 47 Ronin for Universal. Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn subsequently signed on to helm and developed the project for several years with Ryan Gosling attached to star, but when it looked like the film was still no closer to coming to fruition after having been developed for years, Gosling subsequently dropped out. Now WB is looking to get things moving again, and they’ve tapped an interesting talent to pen a new draft of the screenplay: BioShock creator Ken Levine. Hit the jump for more. While a number of writers have written drafts of the script in the past, including Alex Garland and Andrew Baldwin, Deadline reports »

We’ve heard about the possibility of a new Logan’s Run movie for a while now, but it looked like the project was dead after Ryan Gosling exited the remake last year. In news that’s sure to get gamers and sci-fi fans more excited about the project, BioShock creator Ken Levine has been hired by Warner Bros. to write the script for a new version of Logan’s Run.
Ken Levine started as a screenwriter, so this isn’t unknown territory for him. As for why he decided to take some time off his gaming work, apparently this is a passion project for him and we’re excited to see what he comes up with. At this time, there are no details on the direction the story will take, or if it will more closely follow the original book. While classic sci-fi fans should be familiar with the 1976 movie, »

Ken Levine, the creator of one of the most popular video games every, Bioshock, has been hired by Warner Brothers to take on their script for the updated version of Logan’S Run. The long-awaited remake of the 1976 Michael York starrer, which itself was based on an earlier book by William F. Nolan and George Clayton John.
The story revolves around a dystopian society set in the year 2116 where all people must be willingly executed at the age of 21 as a means of population control. Bit harsh…
There has been tons of people attached to this project, including Bryan Singer, and more recently Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive). None of those folk are now involved, but perhaps Levine is the shot in the arm which this highly regarded reboot needs.
We’ll keep you posted on more on this hotly anticipated movie as we get it.

FilmDistrict has sent along the new trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn's excellent crime thriller starring Ryan Gosling, Kristin Scott Thomas, Vithaya Pansringarm, Tom Burke and Yayaying. There's no doubt Refn's style is unique, and Valhalla Rising is certainly one of the most visually-disturbing films I've seen. That said, I just can't help but fall in love with the films he makes, and Drive, also with Ryan Gosling, is on the top 10 of my film list. Only God Forgives is an intense drama about Thai boxing, drug cartels, revenge and justice in the criminal underworld of Bangkok. »
Actor Ryan Gosling has been thoroughly schooled in the making of low budget indies, having taken the lead in films like Half-Nelson as well as Lars and the Real Girl, plus playing both stoic protagonists of Nicolas Winding Refn’s two most recent features, Drive and Only God Forgives. With that in mind, perhaps it’s unsurprising that Gosling should choose to strike out as a director himself with his feature debut, How to Catch a Monster. The film sold to worldwide distributors at Cannes, and stars Saoirse Ronan, Eva Mendes and Ben Mendelsohn.
Based on the synopsis, it sounds like How to Catch a ...

Nicolas Winding Refn's "Only God Forgives" was arguably the most contentious film at last month's Cannes Film Festival, prompting a broad spread of reactions ranging from outrage in the moral-police quarter to disappointment from genre-friendly "Drive" fans to the odd rave review. But it certainly left the festival slightly worse for wear, and when it came to the awards, no one even considered the possibility of it winning anything from Steven Spielberg's jury. Well, it turns out the Sydney Film Festival is a very different animal. Australia's largest film festival wrapped last night with an awards ceremony where jury president Hugo »

The reunion of Ryan Gosling and director Nicholas Winding Wefn, following the terrific Drive, is heading to UK cinemas at the start of August. And Only God Forgives already brings with it the controversy that followed the earlier film. Only God Forgives has had divisive reviews following its Cannes Film Festival debut, and seems to have a similar ability to polarise audiences. But heck, we can't wait to see it.
Here's the latest trailer for the movie then. It's not a red band one this time either, so you can safely watch it in your place of work without people giving you 'looks'. And we'll have more on Only God Forgives in the weeks ahead...

Boasting the sort of mother-son relationship that would have even Norman Bates steering clear, Nicolas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives premiered in Cannes to mixed responses and divisive reviews. Now the new theatrical trailer is online courtesy of Yahoo.

When his brother is slain by a crime lord, Crystal dispatches Julian to hunt the man down and bring her his head.But it won’t be that easy. Tracking down The Angel of Vengeance is one thing; defeating him will be quite another. Julian has plans for his entire organisation that involves a little (or a lot) of the old ultraviolence.Looking to blend the urban bloodiness of Drive with a visceral trawl through Bangkok’s criminal underworld, Only God Forgives won’t be for the faint of heart. »
The brand new trailer for writer/director Nicolas Winding Refn’s second collaboration with Drive lead Ryan Gosling has arrived. While it lacks the corse language and brutality we’ve previously seen in other trailers or clips, the intensity is certainly still there. Only God Forgives received a mixed response following its premiere at last months Cannes Film Festival, and while it’s going to be tough to top easily the best film of 2011, we’re eager to see more from the duo.
Julian (Gosling) lives in exile in Bangkok where he runs a Thai boxing club as a front for the family’s drugs smuggling operation. When Julian’s brother Billy is killed their mother, Jenna (Kristin Scott Thomas), arrives in the city. She wants revenge and forces Julian to find the killer.

Jury president Hugo Weaving says the "visually mesmerising and disturbing film" polarised the jury, but the majority decision was made to award the bleak drama the top prize of $60,000.
The film has certainly been dividing people following its debut at the Cannes Film Festival. According to people in the audience for the film in Sydney last night, big parts of the crowd "audibly turned against it".
Refn, who also won the top Sydney Film Prize in 2009 for "Bronson," says: "I am very honoured and extremely excited to have received this honourable award from a country that in my »

If 2011′s Drive proved anything, it was that Nicolas Winding Refn is a director to look out for. His amazing visual style turned what could have been an ordinary story of a getaway driver into something extraordinary. Now Refn returns with his latest effort entitled Only God Forgives, a film that premiered earlier this year at the Cannes Film Festival.
While there have already been a number of previews for the film, including a teaser and a red-band trailer, yet another full-length theatrical trailer has been released, and as you can probably guess, it shows off Refn’s visual acuity in all its glory.
The film tells the story of Julian (Ryan Gosling), a drug-smuggler is Bangkok’s criminal underworld, who is compelled by his mother to hunt down and kill the person responsible for his brother’s death. The synopsis alone might sound somewhat generic, but given what Refn »

After the Festival de Cannes last month, the entire critical world, at least the ones who saw it in France, took a collective shit on “Only God Forgives,” the latest team up from “Drive” collaborators Ryan Gosling and Nicholas Winding Refn. Not having seen the film yet, I can’t speak to the reaction of others, but this is still high on my list of anticipated movies, and this new trailer does nothing to dissuade me. From all appearances, “Only God Forgives” features a similar aesthetic to “Drive,” a quiet, deliberate pace, punctuated by troubled relationships and moments of explosive violence. This new video comes hot on the heels of a new collection of character posters. Here’s a synopsis: Julian (Gosling), a respected figure in the criminal underworld of Bangkok, runs a Thai boxing club and smuggling ring with his brother Billy. Billy is suddenly murdered and their crime lord matriarch, »

While some folks might be scratching their heads wondering, “What does Refn have to do with horror films?”..hear me out. Not only is the Drive, Bronson and Pusher director one of the biggest fans of horror films around, the dude knows his stuff, even having a pretty impressive original one-sheet collection featuring The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Cannibal Holocaust adorning his walls. That alone makes him an honorary horror guy in my mind, and with the fact that he’s developing a Maniac Cop remake, and has said that he based Ryan Gosling’s character in Drive on Halloween‘s The Shape, well…he’s getting some attention from us.
Refn’s next film, the ultra-violent Only God Forgives, is set to open nationwide July 19th via TWC, and we’ve got some brand new character posters, a Nsfw clip and the red band trailer for you fright fiends. »
