“28 Days Later” screenwriter Alex Garland is reported to be in negotiations to pen the screenplay for Carl Rinsch’s remake of the 1976 sci-fi film “Logan’s Run.”
The plot centers on a twisted future where people have to be die once reaching a certain age. Those that refuse become a “runner” and are hunted down by operatives known as “Sandmen.” Logan is a Sandman who is forced to become a runner.
Producers Joel Silver and Akiva Goldsman are looking for the new film to incorporate the expanded world presented in William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson’s 1967 novel.
Garland has recently been credited for Mark Romanek’s upcoming “Never Let Me Go.” Meanwhile Rinsch is attached to multiple projects including “The Gift,” a remake of “Creature from the Black Lagoon,” and the highly anticipated “47 Ronin.”
