Joel Silver Says Logan's Run is Being 'Devised and Shot in 3D'

Logan's Run

It was just announced last week that Warner Brothers was hiring up-and-coming commercials director Carl Erik Rinsch to direct their upcoming remake of the 1976 science fiction classic Logan's Run. Producing the project is Joel Silver and Silver Pictures, which is specifically who MTV caught up with this week while out promoting Splice. Silver spoke briefly about the project, saying: "I'd like to make Logan's Run [in 3D]. It's a movie I've always been intrigued with, excited by… We're writing a script now and that should be a big 3D movie and it should be devised and shot in 3D." If that's all true, then it's a pretty good start at least!

Silver added that, "I think if we can pull it together, then it [will be shot in 3D]," but he didn't say how soon we might actually see this Logan's Run remake move into production. Rinsch has a few other big projects he's working on right now, including 47 Ronin with Keanu Reeves and the Creature from the Black Lagoon remake, as well as a feature version of his own sci-fi short The Gift (watch it online here). Silver also talked briefly about the Lobo comic book movie, saying that "should also be a 3D movie," but they're still working on it and moving forward without Guy Ritchie as a director anymore. I'm sure we'll hear more on both soon.

I'm almost excited for anything Rinsch is directing, but hearing all this about Logan's Run has me excited to see that project first. We'll be following updates on Rinsch closely to see what he does end up directing next.

I liked the movie when I was little. I liked the TV show when I was little. Then I grew up and realized the actual movie plotline-wize is actually pretty damn crappy. I hope this remake is better.

I'm a huge The Island fan (as you can see from my name) so I'm pumped for this! <3

As if I needed a reason to be less interested in this movie than I already am.
