BioShock creator Ken Levine has confirmed he will write the script for Warner Bros.’ upcoming Logan’s Run remake, according to GameSpot.
Levine told GameSpot he has not starting working on the script yet, but he’s signed up to do it.
Levine cites the the original film as a pivotal moment when he was young and that it heavily influences his career and work.
“It was the first dystopia story I ever saw and if you know my games, obviously it had a huge impact on me,” Levine said. “So I actually talked to [Warner Bros.] and I sort of forced them to give me the job because I said there is no person on earth who spent more time thinking about Logan’s Run and spent more of his career sort of doing things that came off that experience [I] had 10-years-old seeing this movie that I feel, in the same way whether it’s art deco or it’s [Ayn Rand] or American exceptionalism or whatever it is or quantum mechanics, I want to make things that aren’t particularly popular or interesting to people.”
The Logan’s Run remake has cycled through several directors including Bryan Singer (Valkyrie) , Joseph Kosinski (Oblivion), and Nicolas Winding Refn (Only God Forgives). Warner Bros. has not announced who will direct the film or when it will begin shooting, if it ever does.
