Remember when Bryan Singer (‘The X-Men,’ ‘Usual Suspects’) was all set to remake ‘Logan’s Run’? Well, Chris Lee, a feature writer at the Los Angeles Times and frequent Hero Complex contributor, was chatting with Singer for a story on the history of the Sundance Film Festival, and the tangential topic of ‘Logan’s’ came up. And, well, it doesn’t sound like the remake is going to survive through Carousel anytime soon.
‘At the moment, I haven’t decided. I really don’t know,’ Singer told Lee. ‘I’m taking a genuine break. The last four years have been really busy with the miniseries, the TV and the movies. I’m taking a few months to collect myself and figure out what I’m going to do in that regard. We did a lot of development on that movie and a lot of work. To start it up again, I wouldn’t start it up again without a full commitment. So I have decisions to make. Right now, that’s just hanging around.’
Remember the original film? If you haven’t seen it, think disco-toga utopia gone wrong...
All things considered, if this remake had a palm crystal, it would be flashing red right now.
