Ryan Gosling Drops Out of ‘Logan’s Run’ Remake
Ryan Gosling had been attached to star in his first big studio action film - a remake of the 1976's 'Logan's Run' - with frequent collaborator Nicholas Winding-Refn ('Drive'). But now Gosling has dropped out of the project and that leaves us wondering if the 'Logan's Run' remake will ever happen.
The 'Logan's Run' remake had been in the works at Warner Bros. since 2004 when 'X-Men' director Bryan Singer was attached. Singer had hoped to make the film his follow-up to 'Superman Returns' but after that movie hit theaters, the project was put on hold (coincidence?). Singer eventually left the project. Since then a number of directors have been attached to the remake including Joseph Kosinski ('Tron: Legacy') and Carl Erik Rinsch ('47 Ronin') but in 2011, 'Drive' director Nicolas Winding-Refn signed on to develop the project.
Gosling can be seen next in 'Gangster Squad' and is currently filming an untitled film for director Terrence Malick with Natalie Portman, Michael Fassbender and Rooney Mara.
