Los Angeles cop-turned-scribe Will Beall is in negotiations to pen Logan's Run for Warner Bros.

The project has been in development at Warner Bros. for a while, but development got a second wind when Ryan Gosling signed on to star and Nicolas Winding Refn signed on to direct the sci-fi action movie.

The project is based on the 1967 novel by William F. Nolan, and is set in future society where people are executed upon reaching a certain age and those that seek to avoid their fate are deemed "Runners."

No production date has been set.
