Award-winning commercials director Joe Kosinski is attached to the long-gestating remake of 1976 sci-fi classic "Logan's Run" for Warner Bros. Pictures.

The film was originally set up with Bryan Singer to direct and write the initial story upon completing "Superman Returns," but Singer's schedule is already booked with other projects and the project was shelved for a myriad of reasons a while back.

Jayson Rothwell and Travis Beachman are in talks to pen the story of a society that kills their population when they turn 21 and a young man who plans a daring escape on the eve of his fateful birthday.

LOGAN'S RUN: Warner Bros. Pictures remake of "Logan's Run" looks to be back up and running says The Hollywood Reporter.

Commercial director Joseph Kosinski will make his directorial debut on the sci-fi thriller, which is being written by Tim Sexton and produced by Joel Silver.

Following William F. Nolan's 1967 novel closer than the previous 1976 Michael York film did, the premise sees a future society that demands the death of everyone upon reaching a certain age.

Anyone who veers from that destiny is dubbed a "runner" and is hunted by operatives known as Sandmen. Logan is a Sandman who is forced to go on the run.

Kosinski came into Warners with a presentation that included graphic art and animated previsualization which aims to create realistic environments at a modest budget.

Bryan Singer previously signed on to develop and direct in 2004 before he went over to do "Superman Returns".

Producer Joel Silver says the upcoming "Logan's Run" remake "should be devised and shot in 3D. I think if we can pull it together, then it would be". He also confirms the script is being written for it right now.

Scribe Alex Garland (“28 Days Later," "Sunshine”) is in negotiations to pen the remake of “Logan’s Run” for Warner Bros. Pictures reports Heat Vision.

William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson penned the original 1967 novel (and its two subsequent sequels) set in a utopian future where anyone over the age of 30 is mandatorily euthanized in order to maintain a balance over the consumption of resources.

The story follows Logan 5, a 'Sandman' who serves as an enforcer who pursues those who try escaping as they approach their 30th birthday, and ultimately ends up on the run himself.

Most people remember the property via the 1976 cult film classic starring Michael York. "X-Men" helmer Bryan Singer was developing a new film adaptation back in 2004 but work on "Superman Returns" ground things to a halt.

The likes of Robert Schwenke ("Flightplan"), James McTeigue ("V for Vendetta") and Joseph Kosinski ("Tron Legacy") have all been attached to direct the remake at one time or another. Acclaimed commercials and shorts director Carl Erik Rinsch beginning talks to helm the film last month.

Joel Silver and Akiva Goldsman will produce.

Rinsch's name first became attached back in May but he's left the project so he can devote his energy to the upcoming Keanu Reeves-led "47 Ronin" at Universal Pictures.

Rinsch had to make a decision between the films this month and 'Ronin' had moved ahead of 'Logan' in terms of readiness. 'Ronin' will mark Rinsch's feature debut after his award winning commercials and short film work.

Joel Silver and Akiva Goldsman are producing 'Logan' from a script by Alex Garland and are likely to seek a new helmet rather than wait for Rinsch to finish 'Ronin'.

Simon Kinberg (“X-Men: Dark Phoenix”) has closed a deal to direct “Logan’s Run,” the long in the works remake of the classic 1976 film which itself was based on the William F. Noland and George Clayton Johnson novel.

The premise sees a future utopian society that demands the death of everyone upon reaching a certain age in order to ensure resources are maintained in equilibrium.

Anyone who veers from that destiny is dubbed a ‘runner’ and is hunted by operatives known as Sandmen. Logan 5 is a Sandman who is forced to go on the run.

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay” and “The Town” writer Peter Craig will pen the project which is expected to feature a female lead instead of a male lead. Kinberg previously says the property was being conceived as a potential franchise.
