Logan’s Run remake seeks female for the role of Logan?

April 8th, 2015 by Marc Comments


While it’s been on the cards for some time now, we sort of forgot about the rumoured Logan’s Run remake. Until now.

Warner’s have been trying to get their remake of the 1976 movie where the character of Logan learns a deadly secret about the future society they live in and goes on the run to expose the lie that everyone is being told, while being hunted by government operatives called Sandmen. The original starred Micheal York and a very beautiful Jenny Agutter and was based on  William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson’s novel of the same name.

Now Bioshock creator Ken Levine’s script – once touted to star Ryan Gosling – has apparently been rewritten to make Logan a female this time out.

While this does seem to be something of a modern trend, we don’t really see any reason why it shouldn’t work; afterall, sci-fi has always been the home of strong female characters. Long may that last.

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….
