BioShock creator Ken Levine is handling the screenplay for Warner Bros.’ Logan’s Run remake, reports Deadline.
The original 1976 Logan’s Run is based on a novel of the same name by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson. The story revolves around a society that terminates its citizens once they reach the age of thirty in an effort to prevent overpopulation, and the titular hero’s attempt to escape this film.
Levine studied drama at Vassar College, and wrote two screenplays before joining Look Glass Studios to develop System Shock 2 and Thief.
And then BioShock happened, and BioShock Infinite, both of which were met with critical acclaim, particularly praised for their storytelling. According to Deadline, Levine’s work on the Logun’s Run screenplay won’t affect his responsibilities as creative director and co-founder at Irrational Games. Good news for those of us eagerly awaiting the BioShock Infinite DLC.
