Logan's Run Remake NEwsWarner Bros. has been trying to get a Logan's Run remake up and running for years. Bryan Singer was initially attached to the project but eventually dropped out leaving an opening for Carl Rinsch to take the helm. But when Rinsch left to direct Keanu Reeves in 47 Ronin, the project was back-burnered yet again.

Now Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn has taken over and, according to Deadline, is circling indie darling Ryan Gosling to step in as Sandman to finally bring to life the remake of the 1976 futuristic drama about a man who tries to outrun a mandatory death sentence that awaits  all 30-year old's.

Gosling would reportedly play the role of Sandman (originally portrayed by by David Westberg) whose job it was to put to permanent sleep those who try to escape mandatory death.
