‘Logan’s Run’ being turned into movie franchise because reasons

Logan's Run.

Weird. I recently saw Logan’s Run for the first time, and it was a pretty fantastic dose of hallucinatory mid-70s science-fiction. I enjoyed it! However, at no point did the movie scream either “mass market!” or “movie franchise!” to me. But, what the fuck do I know?

So defenders of the movie from the jump, fart right in my mouth. I’ll let you. ‘Cause I enjoyed it. Ain’t too proud to admit it.

Maybe: Fox looking to replace ‘FANTASTIC FOUR’ director, script, cast. Five months before shooting.

Face Palm.

If this ain’t a mess for a Marvel flick happening outside of its Studios Umbrella. Word on the street (or at least the Internet street, which is rife with homeless people, semen-filled syringes, and speculation) is that Fox is actively looking to dump pretty much everything related to its Fantastic Four flick.

FOX signs SIMON KINBERG to serve as the Kevin Fiege of their MARVEL MOVIE UNIVERSE

Simon Kinberg.

Television shows have showrunners. Now it seems that the bloated comic book universes that are slowly coming to encompass all of our cinematic pop culture (exaggeration) will all have their own steward.
