Levine Penning Script for Hollywood Movie?


Ken Levine, well-known game designer and creator of BioShock, is to pen the script for the remake of the sci-fi film Logan's Run (1976). Reportedly, Levine will remain creative director at Irrational Games (the studio responsible for BioShock Infinite).

I've actually seen this movie twice. It was a great sci-fi tale for its time. Also, I have nothing against Ken Levine moving on to script-writing, but I must admit that there seems to be a lot of this going on in the industry lately. Hollywood writers working on video games and the other way around. A game designer is supposed to be a game designer. So it was decreed...

Okay, I don't want to come across as jerk here. It's understandable. Games are big-budget projects now. After all they make more money than movies. Still, from some angles I just don't like the way the movie industry has intertwined with the video games industry. Also, if Levine decides to call it a day, as far as games are concerned, well, that's one proper game designer less and that's not a good thing.

That and also: Why does Logan's Run need a remake? Leave is gem as it was and is. On the other hand, that guy can do whatever he wants and he's made so many wonderful things so why not?

Logan's Run is dated but good. I watch it every couple of years and it always entertains. A remake will probably be soulless, like pretty much all remakes. You can't replace a Michael York with any ole prick.

They'd make it rated PG-13, it would be more explosive, it would be very monochromatic, and they'd get rid of all the silk and near-nudity. It probably would be very lame, like Total Recall.

I'm probably not gonna watch it, but I will definitely check out the reviews on rottentomatoes.

I don't have high expectations from Ken Levine's story writing ability, but maybe I'm underestimating how hard it is to write a half decent story for a first person shooter.
