It seems a gestating sci-fi remake is finally back on track with a new director on board. Heat Vision Blog is reporting that Carl Rinsch has signed on to direct Logan's Run for Warner Bros.

The remake had attracted potential directors such as Bryan Singer, Robert Schwentke, James McTeigue and Joseph Kosinski during its long course of development. Rinsch took Hollywood by storm recently with his short film The Gift (CLICK HERE to watch Rinsch's short film).

It was said that Rinsch will be looking to hire a new writer for the film, which is a remake of the 1976 sci-fi classic Logan's Run, which starred Michael York and Farrah Fawcett. The film centered on a future society where everyone's death was pre-determined and "runners" tried to escape their fate. York played one of the "Sandmen" who hunted down the "runners" and is forced to go on the run himself.
