Logan's Run remake set to start production next year

The retool of cult classic Logan's Run will begin production in 2012 according to its producer, Joel Silver.

'We're really excited about the potential of that movie, " Silver told Total Film . "We’re currently working on a script and when we have that we're all gonna try to get that made - hopefully next year."

Silver is getting ready to release Sherlock Holmes 2 in December and reckons he knows a good cinematic duo when he sees them.

"We’re very excited about doing it with Nicolas [ Winding Refn ] and Ryan [ Gosling ]. With the beautiful movie that they made together with Drive they work well together."

The director and star are set to work together again before Logan's Run though, with Thai-boxing thriller Only God Forgives currently preparing to shoot.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows opens on 26 December 2011.
