Andrew Baldwin has become the latest writer to take a stab at Warner Brothers’ remake of the 1976 science-fiction adventure Logan’s Run. Although he doesn’t have any produced credits, Baldwin made 2008’s Black List with The West Is Dead. More recently, he wrote Red Asphalt for Lionsgate.
Logan’s Run is one of those films that has seemingly been in development forever. Currently Nicolas Winding Refn is the most recent director to be attached to the project. Previously Carl Erik Rinsch, Bryan Singer, Skip Woods and James McTeigue all had turns on the project. Baldwin will be working from a draft by Gangster Squad’s Will Beall, who rewrote a draft by Alex Garland.
Refn is looking to have his Drive star Ryan Gosling to star in the story of a futuristic cop who defies society’s laws that demand that anyone over the age of 30 be euthanized and flees to the rumored safety of a place called “Sanctuary.”
Before Refn gets to Logan’s Run, he will be shooting his the Thailand-set thriller Only God Forgives, also with Gosling.
