Ryan Gosling will headline a remake of Logan's Run for Warner Bros. and director Nicolas Winding Refn. Gosling recently shot Drive with Refn.
Logan's Run focuses on a stunt man who makes cash on the side as a heist wheel man. The original 1976 film starred Michael York and Richard Jordan. The planned remake has been knocking around Hollywood for some time.
After winning rave reviews in indies such as Half Nelson and Blue Valentine, Gosling is clearly ready to cash some bigger paycheck. Whether or not audiences will accept him as an action star remains to be seen.

Ms. Lee will receive her special honor at the International Day Luncheon to take place on Monday, March 28, 2011.
"Having been involved in the industry from a worldwide standpoint for many years, I can tell you when it comes to respect, admiration and integrity, I don't know if there is anyone more deserving of this first time honor than Miky Lee," said Neuhauser. "She is highly regarded on so many levels be it from a professional or personal standpoint. Her global vision and dedication have lead to a film industry that thrives in Korea and crosses other borders too. We are simply honored to present her with the CinemaCon Global Achievement in Exhibition Award."
Lee, alongside her brother and the Chairman of CJ group, founded the entertainment and media division of CJ in 1994 after leading CJ to become one of the founding investors in DreamWorks SKG.

NEW YORK -- IMAX Corporation and Jiangsu Eudemonia Blue Ocean Cinema Development Co., Ltd. ("Blue Ocean") today announced an agreement to install four new digital IMAX(R) theatre systems in the People's Republic of China. Under the terms of the agreement, Blue Ocean will build an IMAX digital theatre system into Suzhou Xinsu Tiandi International's Cineplex at Xinsu Plaza in August of this year. The remaining three theatre systems are at new construction locations scheduled to open in early 2014: the Kunming Eudemonia Blue Ocean International Cineplex in Kunming; the Eudemonia Blue Ocean International Cineplex in Taizhou; and the Central Eudemonia Blue Ocean International Cineplex in Xuzhou. Jiangsu Province is on the country's east coast and has a population of 77 million.
"The IMAX brand represents the world's premiere cinema experience, and it is very much in demand with audiences in China, where IMAX screens significantly outperform conventional screens," said Mr. Jiang Wenbo, GM of Jiangsu Eudemonia Blue Ocean. "IMAX digital theatres are playing an increasingly important role in the success of multiplexes in China and around the world. IMAX's exciting film slate, which has started to include mainstream Chinese films in addition to its strong slate of major Hollywood event movies, will enable us to offer a movie-going experience unavailable in any other type of theatre in China."
Commenting on the announcement, IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond said, "Entering into a partnership with Blue Ocean is ideal for the growth of the IMAX brand in China. Blue Ocean was established by the state-owned Jiangsu Broadcasting Corporation specifically to develop cinemas, yet another example of how the nation's exhibition industry is poised to continue its significant expansion over the coming years. We look forward to working with this important client at these four locations to offer audiences awe-inspiring entertainment experiences."
"This agreement strategically aligns our brand with one of the strongest local exhibition brands in Jiangsu Province," added Don Savant, Senior Vice President & Managing Director, Asia Pacific. "We believe that Blue Ocean is a reputable and knowledgeable exhibitor that is poised for significant growth, and we're confident that our relationship with them will continue to fuel the growth of the IMAX network in China, which is set to more than double from approximately 40 sites today to 100 over the next couple of years."
IMAX's digital projection system delivers The IMAX Experience(R) and helps drive profitability for studios, exhibitors and IMAX theatres by eliminating the need for film prints, increasing program flexibility and ultimately increasing the number of movies shown on IMAX screens. The system can run both IMAX and IMAX(R) 3D presentations.
