Hollywood has long been trying to make a new adaptation of Logan's Run, William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson's dystopian story of a society in which all people must be willingly executed at age 21. The latest go sees Ken Levine, creator of the Bioshock video game franchise, brought on board to script the project.
Though Levine will continue to focus on video games as creative director and co-founder of Irrational Games, he began his career as a screenwriter and a playwright.
The story was previously adapted into a 1976 Michael Anderson-directed film that starred Michael York. Previous attempts to get a remake going have involved the likes of X-Men helmer Bryan Singer, and more recently Drive's Nicolas Winding Refn with Ryan Gosling as the lead.
