The rumored Logan’s Run remake may finally be moving forward with a new screenwriter.

Deadline reported that Warner Bros is bringing in video game creator Ken Levine of BioShock fame to pen the science fiction adventure.

Synopsis: Based in the 1967 novel by William F. Nolan and George Clayton JohnsonLogan’s Run is set in a dystopia in which all citizens are terminated at a certain age (21 in the book, 30 in the 1976 movie adaptation) as a means of population control. Though a few Runners try to escape their fates, they rarely succeed as the society employs operatives called Sandmen to find them. At the center of the plot is Logan, a Sandman who himself becomes a Runner.


Doctor Strange is reportedly going to mean more to Phase 3 than most fans are expecting.

The following quote is directly from the source and is what Marvel’s current thought process is for the Doctor as of right now.

“What I can say is that Strange is being groomed to be the next Iron Man. The studio needs a new ‘hub’ character going into Phase 3 and beyond, as there is audience fatigue, aging stars and a need to move from Tony Stark/Iron Man as a ‘hub’ for films.”

The CBM accurately states Doctor Strange will be the new glue that helps holds together the Marvel Cinematic Universe—since he can bounce between so many realms, dimensions and planes—just as Stark has done in the past. (S.H.I.E.L.D. helps do that too.)

Terminator close up photoParamount, Annapurna Pictures, and Skydance Productions have announced that thenew Terminator movie will be released in 2015.

The news also includes rumors that Arnold Schwarzenegger has repeatedly said that he’ll be in the film and the most recent rumors have Dwayne Johnson possibly going toe-to-toe with Arnold.

Terminator 5 will be the first feature in a new trilogy.
