Logan's Run remake now being developed for a female lead

04.08.2015

Logan's Run

A remake of LOGAN'S RUN has been in the works since the mid-1990s with various actors, directors and screenwriters attached to the sci-fi project over the years, including (most recently) Ryan Gosling and his DRIVE and ONLY GOD FORGIVES director Nicolas Winding Refn

Last we knew Warner Bros. had hired BioShock creator Ken Levine to write the script, but now Tracking Board is reporting that the studio is "hunting down a fresh writer to develop the film for a female lead."

The site doesn't have any additional details on the remake, but having a female lead more than likely won't change the story for the film. It could bug some fans of the William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson novel and the original 1976 movie, but if the project actually moves forward (and at this point that's a huge if), I will have no problem with a female Logan.

Who do you want to play Logan in the remake? Emma Stone? Anne Hathaway? Sound off below with your suggestions!

I actually like remakes, I in no way believe they affect the originals, and I like seeing classics with modern day effects. But I just don't see this one being necessary. One of my oldie faves, and one of the first times I laid eyes on perfect breats. I say leave this one alone.

No way.

No No. NO.
Logan's Run is a perfect example of a movie that should be remade. Interesting premise, poor execution. Why they remake perfect movies is beyond me. i. e. Psycho.
But there is no need to change the lead to a female. Sigh.

Who cares? I mean a Logan's Run remake could be good. I don't think having a male or female lead matters all that much. But considering it's "been in the works" for well over a decade, why are we treating this news as though it's any closer to coming together?

Now Emma Stone sounds very enticing for this project. How about Evangeline Lilly? For Logan you want a younger person. Anna Sophia Robb would be perfect for it.

Extra tidbit: Felicity Jones. This is one remake that I'm very excited for.

Dare I say Rhona Rousey...not like the acting has to be much of a stretch...if you need someone who can physically handle it. I mean aside from obviously having "the goods", why not make it a gratutious (sp) female action film...Michelle Rodriguez too maybe...

76 movie was so campy, but I like... guess that's why I have it on Blu-ray.

As long as it's a good script and a well done film, who cares what the sex of the lead is!
