Logan’s Run to be rewritten for female lead


They’re trying so hard to get Logan’s Run remade, but it just refuses to fall into place. It’s almost adorable. You go, studio heads, you make it happen. Don’t let the cruel forces of capitalism through which you exploit millions daily tell you what to do! Never give up on your dream!

Originally, it was going to be a Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling joint, but that all fell apart years ago. Then, he of Looks Like Ben Stiller fame, Ken Levine was writing the screenplay. Now, the word is that the studio is looking for new writers to completely retool the movie in order to star a female lead. Bereft of both man and lighthouse, Levine’s usefulness had come to an end.

I hope they find a way to release the film soon. If it’s stuck in development hell after 21 quarterly reports, I believe it has to be executed.
