X-Men: Dark Phoenix director Simon Kinberg to take charge of Logan's Run remake

Simon Kinberg will direct a new remake of Logan's Run

Kinberg has been acting as producer on the project since 2015, during which time both X-Men regular Bryan Singer and Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski have been attached to the project and then departed. 

Now Kinberg, who is currently putting the finishing touches to X-Men: Dark Phoenix, will direct himself.

The project has seen the likes of Alex Garland, Will Beal, Christopher McQuarrie and Nicolas Winding Refn all provide work on the script, but as yet, a scene has yet to be shot. Peter Craig, who wrote both instalments of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, is currently working on a new version. 

Logan's Run is based on William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson's 1967 dystopian novel and is set in a city within an enclosed dome, inside the city there is little or no work for humans to perform and inhabitants are free to pursue all of the pleasures of life.

There is one catch however, all adults must die at the age of 21 and if they fail to company officers known as Sandmen are sent to track them down.

The movie has been adapted for the screen in 1976 starring Michael York and Jenny Agutter and you can check out that version here in hmv's online store.
