GANGSTER SQUAD Scribe Will Beall May Pen LOGAN’S RUN Remake

     March 31, 2011


Apparently impressed by his work on the script for Gangster Squad, Heat Vision reports that Warner Bros. is currently negotiating with L.A. cop-turned-scribe Will Beall to pen their remake of the 1976 sci-fi film Logan’s Run. Based on the 1967 novel by William F. Nolan, Logan’s Run is set in a future dystopian society in which people are required by law to be executed at a certain age so as to manage resource consumption. As the story goes, one of the executioners, Logan, goes on the run after aiding and abetting those evading the law.

In addition to its negotiations with Beall, Warner Bros. remake has been gaining steam after casting Ryan Gosling in the title role and handing over the director’s chair to Bronson writer/director Nicolas Winding Refn. As for Beall, his career is on a similar upswing with his aforementioned Gangster Squad being helmed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) and gaining interest from both Gosling and Sean Penn. Beall has also been hired to pen a Lethal Weapon reboot for Warner Bros.
