Logan's Run Remake in 3D

Logan's Run, the fantastic science fiction film that debuted in 1976, is getting a reboot in 3D. If you've seen the film The Island, you've basically seen Logan's Run with a slightly different twist and in a much toned down iteration.
The plot involved a dystopian future society in which population and the consumption of resources is managed and maintained in equilibrium by the simple expediency of killing everyone who reaches the age of thirty (21 in the book), thus neatly (and inhumanely) avoiding the issue of overpopulation which was of growing concern at the time. Those who try to escape their destiny are known as a “Runners”, and is hunted down by operatives known as Sandmen.

Check out the trailer for the original film here.

The Island was much closer to the film Parts: The Clonus Horror. Ripoff perhaps. There was actually a lawsuit over the similarity.,_The_Clouns_Horror#The_Island_suit

Er, excuuuuuuuuuuse me, but have you even SEEN Logan's Run? The only things the two films have in common are that they are both set in the future. The similarities pretty much end there.
