BioShock’s Ken Levine confirms he is penning the script for Logan’s Run remake
BioShock creator Ken Levine has confirmed he is penning the script for the Logan’s Run remake.
A report stating he was penning the script surfaced back in June and during a Boston event this weekend where the BioShock Infinite DLC was revealed, Gamespot received confirmation from the man himself; plus, it has been an inspiration to Levine since he saw it as a 10-year-old back in 1976.
“It was the first dystopia story I ever saw and if you know my games, obviously it had a huge impact on me,” said Levine. “So I actually talked to [Warner Bros.] and I sort of forced them to give me the job because I said there is no person on earth who spent more time thinking about Logan’s Run – and spent more of his career sort of doing things that came off that experience – in the same way whether it’s art deco or it’s [Ayn Rand] or American exceptionalism or whatever it is or quantum mechanics.
“I want to make things that aren’t particularly popular or interesting to people. I think Logan’s Run, because it’s such a 70s goofy thing, I think there’s a story in there that there’s a real good story there that needs to be told and it’s certainly inspired almost my entire career.”
Levine said is signed up to write it but hasn’t started yet. He’s probably been to busy with the BioShock Infinite DLC, Burial at Sea – Episode One which is out in the fall and Burial at Sea – Episode Two which is out in 2014.
The Clash in the Clouds DLC is out today and will cost £3.69 / 400 Microsoft Points and is also included in the game’s season pass. It’s seen as a stop-gap to tide players over until Burial at Sea launches.
