Ryan Gosling is now attached to star in the ‘Logan’s Run’ remake. Nicolas Winding Refn is attached as director. The two worked together on upcoming movie ‘Drive’.
The 1976 movie (based on the book by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson) is set in a future in which society has moved underground and all those who reach the age of 30 must submit to a deadly ritual called “carousel.” Gosling will play Logan 5, a “Sandman” whose job is to catch the one who try to escape their fate, until he is forced to become a runner himself.
Silver Pictures’ Joel Silver and Andrew Rona are producing with Weed Road’s Akiva Goldsman, with Kerry Foster exec producing. Production starts in the fall.
