Drive actor Ryan Gosling is set to once again team up with his Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn, when the two work together on the remake of the 1976 movie Logan’s Run. Ryan has claimed that they are looking to make a movie based more on the book than the 1976 original, as he feels he would have difficulty relating to the film.
Gosling explained, “It’s so different from our idea for Logan’s. We want to go back more to the book. We also have other ideas. That film was shot in a mall in the seventies and I can’t see how it would influence me.” He then addressed the concern among some people that the studio could end up pulling the plug on the Logan’s Run if it does not meet their specific requirements.
Ryan added, “Well it would be interesting to see how that works in a studio system, but they’ve been so supportive of us in the development process that there’s no reason for us to doubt them. I’ve been really enjoying the process of developing it and we’re just focusing on that. We’re just trying to create this world and try to make a movie that we’ll want to see like what we did with Drive, so we’ll see how that turns out.” The Logan’s Run remake is set to be released in 2014.
