‘Logan’s Run’ Remake Back on Track at Warner Bros.

Warner Bros. is making another swing at “Logan’s Run” with Simon Kinberg on board to write a treatment for the remake of the sci-fi actioner.

Kinberg will produce with Joel Silver, who was based at Warners until three years ago. Kinberg is a producer on “X-Men: Apocalypse,” “Fantastic Four” and “Deadpool.”

Carl Rinsch was in talks in 2010 to direct “Logan’s Run” for Warner Bros. with Silver and Akiva Goldsman producing. At that point, the project — focused on a man trying to escape a mandatory death sentence on his 30th birthday — had been in development at Warners for more than a decade, with Bryan Singer, Skip Woods, Robert Schwenke and James McTeigue associated at various points as possible directors.

The 1976 original pic, released by MGM and based on a 1967 novel by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson, starred Michael York as a man who tries to outrun cops who kill everyone who reaches 30 to alleviate overpopulation. Michael Anderson directed with Jenny Agutter and Farrah Fawcett co-starring.

Kinberg is repped by CAA and Karl Austen at Jackoway Tyerman. The news was first reported by the Hollywood Reporter.
