In the time of remakes, it was only a matter of time before someone tried to remake one of the best science fiction films ever.

Joel Silver (The Matrix trilogy) is all set to organize and film a remake of the 1976 Academy Award winning Logan’s Run. Silver produced all three Matrix films and his most recent work was on the soon to be released film, The Reaping.

The film was set in a futuristic society where people were automatically put to death at the age of thirty. This kept the population from becoming overcrowded and always keeping young healthy bodies around. One man decided to resist the mandatory death sentence which started his adventure.

The film won the Academy Awards for its visual effects and was nominated for two other categories.

There is no other information on whether this will be a straight remake or follow-up or what, but we’ll get you more information as we do.
