We Just Crapped Our Pants: Ryan Gosling & Nicolas Winding Refn Team For 'Logan's Run'

Ahhh! This is what Ryan Gosling was alluding to. Let's face it, we didn't give a shit about the "Logan's Run" remake throughout its long development history that saw a number of directors -- notably Bryan Singer and more recently Carl Erik Rinsch (who is moving on to do "47 Ronin") -- circle the director's chair. But congratu-fucking-lations Warner Bros., you made us sit up and take notice.

Ahhh! This is what Ryan Gosling was alluding to. Let's face it, we didn't give a shit about the "Logan's Run" remake throughout its long development history that saw a number of directors -- notably Bryan Singer and more recently Carl Erik Rinsch (who is moving on to do "47 Ronin") -- circle the director's chair. But congratu-fucking-lations Warner Bros., you made us sit up and take notice.

Deadline reports that the WB is sealing the deal that will find "Drive" duo Ryan Gosling and Nicolas Winding Refn take on the sci-fi reboot. Yep, our tickets are bought -- twice over. Gosling will take on the role of Logan 5, a "Sandman" who is tasked with with chasing down those who try to run from their state sanctioned death at the age of 30, the maximum allowed by the futuristic society. But when his own date of termination arrives, well, he goes on the run.

The film will still utilize the script written by Alex Garland ("28 Days Later," "Sunshine"), which has apparently made the suits at Warner Bros. very happy. So, Nicolas Winding Refn getting money to play in the studio sandbox? Fuck. Yes. We can't wait to see what the visually ambitious director dreams up for this reboot and with Gosling along for the ride into his first tentpole movie, this will certainly be hugely exciting.
