Logan’s Run remake is back on at Warners

July 22nd, 2015 by Marc Comments


It looks like the good folks at Warners are determined to get Logan’s Run up off the ground. Again.

This time it’s down to Simon Kinberg, currently neck deep in X-Men and Star Wars duties, to pen the remake of the classic sci-fi movie.

The original 1976 movie starred Michael York and Jenny Agutter and told the story of a future that saw everyone killed when they reached 30 (although no-one knew this is what was happening) and the one man who struggled to change everything.

It’s an iconic movie that, in fairness hasn’t aged too well… so we’re unsure how we feel about the remake.

One thing is for sure, if handled properly, it could be an outstanding movie. Now Hollywood. please don’t screw it up.

That’s if it ever happens.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
