Heat Vision is reporting that writer Alex Garland (28 Weeks Later) is presently in negotiations to pen Logan's Run for Warner Bros.

The original film came out in 1976 and starred Michael York, Jenny Agutter and Farrah Fawcett. It is based on a 1967 novel by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson. Producers Joel Silver and Akiva Goldsman want this redux to more closely resemble the book.

Warners has been trying for some time to get this new version made. Late last month, they started talking with commercials director Carl Rinsch to direct it.

Logan's Run takes place in "a future society that demands the death of everyone upon reaching a certain age. Anyone who veers from that destiny is dubbed a 'runner' and is hunted by operatives known as Sandmen. Logan is a Sandman who is forced to go on the run."
