Ken Levine writing Logan’s Run script for Warner Bros. Pictures – report

Tuesday, 18th June 2013 18:45 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Deadline has reported that BioShock creator Ken Levine has taken over writing the script for Warner Bros. Pictures’ remake of Logan’s Run.

According to the site, the 1976 cult classic science fiction film is being remade with Jon Berg overseeing its production.

The film, which many of us are too young to remember seeing, in the theater at least, was based on the 1967 novel by William F. Nolan and George Clayton John.

It was set in the year 2116 and people were willingly executed upon turning 21 years of age – 30 at the maximum – to control the population. Michael York starred in the original film.

A spin-off series for TV was created in 1977 and failed miserably.

    Yeah, he said he’s really a failed film writer, so his game development exploits seem to be giving him another entry point into that industry.

    After Infinite, it’s fairly obvious that what he really wants to do are movies and carefully constructed stories.

    Infinite was more of a film than a game after all.

    @2: Maximum combo of over-pretentiousness.

    Edit: Looks like Nicholas Winding Refn is not attached anymore.

    @7: Did you see Valhalla Rising? Biggest snorefest ever. He seems to do this with all of his movies. First 10 min. are great. Everything else is boring as fuck. Drive is not a film about driving.

    The entire movie should’ve been more of that scene:

    Valhalla Rising was pretty boring, Drive was disappointing, but I quite liked Bronson.

    The acting was just incredible in that movie. An actor like Tom Hardy is wasted on Christopher Nolan.

    @10: Yeah, the acting in Bronson was superb. But I did not like the movie. :/

    To Nolan’s credit: He hired Hardy because of his performance in Rock’nRolla. He had no idea he already got in shape for Warrior and Bronson.

    Rock’nRolla, man. A very underrated movie if you ask me.

    I still liked his performance as Bane, the character itself was just underdeveloped. Did not like the “twist” as it kind of ruined everything about Banes characters and reduced him to muscle without brain.

    Say what!? WHAT!?
    Discarding the initial shock, I hope he does great. We need to have more interactions with other art forms. Look at Avengers. It was made by someone from other forms of entertainment (TV and comics). We have had a few outsider artists working one games but never a game maker on a movie (Excluding FF film of course).
