‘Logan’s Run’ Remake Moves Ahead With ‘Colony’ Showrunner Ryan Condal

Warner Bros. is moving ahead with its reboot of “Logan’s Run,” tapping “Colony” co-creator/showrunner Ryan Condal to write a new script.
The move comes a year after “X-Men Apocalypse” co-writer Simon Kinberg came on to pen a treatment.
Kinberg will produce with Joel Silver and Greg Berlanti. Kinberg is a producer on “X-Men: Apocalypse,” “Fantastic Four” and “Deadpool,” while Berlanti has teamed with DC Comics COO Geoff Johns as the creative force behind the TV hits “Arrow,” “The Flash” and “Supergirl.”
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 Schwentke and James McTeigue associated as possible directors at various points.
The 1976 original movie, released by MGM and based on the 1967 novel by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson, starred Michael York as a man trying to outrun cops killing everyone who reaches the age of 30 to alleviate overpopulation. Michael Anderson directed with Jenny Agutter and Farrah Fawcett starring.
Condal is co-creator and executive producer of USA Network’s “Colony,” which is set to return for a second season in early 2017. He’s also rewriting the script with Carlton Cuse for “Rampage,” starring Dwayne Johnson.
Condal is repped by WME. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
