Release Date: [PROJECT HAS BEEN POSTPONED]
Director: Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive)Cast: Ryan Gosling
Category: Reinterpretation of the Logan's Run novel.
Our take: Anyone familiar with the work of auteur director Nicolas Winding Refn (Bronson, Valhalla) should know that no matter what source he draws from, the end result is going to be very much his own work. And after seeing the...unique way Refn and his "muse" Ryan Gosling approached crime drama in Drive, it's really anybody's guess how the pair will tackle the dystopian themes of Logan's Run.
Refn informed us that he indeed has a fresh new vision of the classic tale in mind - though he's not sharing what that vision is. Since this project will mark Refn's first big-budget studio film, it's also questionable just how much creative freedom he will be allowed: don't be too surprised if "creative differences" ultimately knock this Run back to the starting line.
