LOGAN 'S RUN Remake Relaunched with Simon Kinberg

Kinberg Adds Sci-Fi Remake to Resume That Includes ' X-Men ' , 'Star Wars ' and 'Fantastic Four '.

For those unfamiliar with the 1976 sci-fi movie, it takes place in a world where people are killed at age 30 in order to maintain balance in society. The story follows Logan 5 ( Michael York ), a sandman (state police) who goes after runners (people who decided: "Hey, I think I might want to doing things after I turn 30 rather than launching me ritual suicide) until he becomes a runner himself. This is a movie that could certainly represent an update, as the general premise (ageism) is still worth exploring.

It will be interesting to see if this iteration of the film is the one that ultimately comes together. Kinberg is currently working on X-Men: Dark Phoenix , which will be his first official feature film despite being in Hollywood for some time now. as a writer and producer, and he's also directed the uncredited directing of Fantastic Four covers. As for Craig, he recently adapted YA's novel STAGS for 20th Century Fox and he's also writing the screenplay for Top Gun 2 . Deadline adds that Kinberg is writing a Star Wars movie, but that may be old information. At some point , he was working on the for the Boba Fett spin-off that Josh Trank would be directing, but that project appears to have fallen into limbo after Trank was fired following the fallout on Fantastic Four.
