The project is based on the 1967 novel by William F. Nolan that was adapted into the 1976 film starring Michael York. The base of the story for those of you that have no clue is a future society where people are executed upon reaching a certain age and those that seek to avoid their fate are deemed “Runners.” There was also a short lived TV series also named Logan’s Run (1977-1978) which picks up where the original movie left off.
The character of Logan is one of those executioners, known as the Sandmen, who ends up on the run after he becomes sympathetic with members of an underground railroad of Runners.
Beall will be picking up writing duties after Alex Garland (Never Let Me Go, 28 Days Later), who was previously attached to the project.
