X-Men writer Simon Kinberg to take charge of new Logan's Run reboot
Simon Kinberg, best known for writing X-Men: Days Of Future Past and the new reboot of Fantastic Four, is to script a new version of Logan's Run.
A remake of the iconic 1976 sci-fi movie has been in development for some time, with writers like Alex Garland and Christopher McQuarrie among those who've worked on it, with directors Bryan Singer and Nicholas Winding Refn attached at one point.
But now Kinberg, who is currently working on X-Men: Apocalypse, has signed up to write the story and treatment of the new adaptation.
Logan's Run is based on William F. Nolan's novel and starred Michael York. It is set in an idyllic 23rd century where there is little or no work for humans to perform and inhabitants are free to pursue all of the pleasures of life, there's only run drawback, all humans must die at 30, a fate Logan himself is desperate to avoid.
