With actor Ryan Gosling and director Nicolas Winding Refn long departed from the planned "Logan's Run Remake," Warner Bros. is reportedly looking to rewrite the script to make way for a female lead.
That's according to The Tracking Board, which notes the box-office performances of such recent sci-fi franchises as "The Hunger Games" and "Divergent."
Gosling was originally set to star as Logan in the new adaptation of the 1967 novel by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson about a dystopian society where people are condemned to execution upon reaching a certain age. Those who attempt to escape their fate are deemed Runners and are hunted down by executioners known as the Sandmen. As a Sandman, Logan himself becomes a man on the run when he joins with an underground group of Runners.
Due to the book's core message -- a critique of human kind -- a shift in gender shouldn't affect the main plot line.
