Nicolas Winding Refn To Direct Logan's Run, Ryan Gosling Closing Deal To Star

It looks like Warner Bros. has finally got their Logan's Run remake close to production. Deadline reports that Nicolas Winding Refn (Pusher Trilogy, Bronson) is set to direct with Ryan Gosling finalizing his deal to play Logan. Gosling recently worked with Nicolas on the action thriller Drive and seems to be the key reason he's finally making an event studio film. I'm also excited to see Winding Refn jump into the sci-fi genre.

Bryan Singer had once been attached to direct but left to focus on other films. Carl Rinsch (The Gift, 47 Ronin) was next but also ditched the project to shoot his samurai film 47 Ronin. Alex Garland (28 Days Later, Sunshine, Never Let Me Go, Dredd) has written a well received script for the studio and it's expected it could go into production sometime this year.
