If it had taken much longer to get this reboot going, the sandmen might have come after it.
After upwards of 20 years in development and redevelopment, Logan”s Run is back on again. Deadline is reporting that the remake of the 1976 movie has added Ryan Condal (Colony) to write the script.

When Logan 5 (Michael York), a sandman, finds out that he”s soon to be “controlled,” he runs. The movie also featured Farrah Fawcett-Majors and Peter Ustinov.
