BioShock series creator and former creative director of Irrational Games Ken Levine is no longer working on the screenplay for the Logan's Run remake, The Hollywood Reporter reports and Levine seems to confirm in a series of tweets.
Writer-producer Simon Kinberg (producer on X-Men Apocalypse, Fantastic Four and Deadpool) will be the latest in a series of writers who will try their hand on reworking the 1976 film based on a 1967 sci-fi novel.
Before Levine tried his hand at the screenplay, Alex Garland (Ex Machina, 28 Days Later, Dredd), Will Beall (The Legend of Conan, Gangster Squad) and Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects, Edge of Tomorrow, Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation) all had a go.
For his part, Levine tweeted earlier this week that he's heard that at least one "major thing" is surviving from his draft. He added that he is already working on another movie script and that he'll be able to talk about the new film "soon(ish)."
But my time on Logan's was an amazing experience. Worked with great people at Warner's. And I got to play in my favorite fictional universe.

A remake of the film has been in the works at Warner since 2000.
We've reached out to Levine for comment and will update this story when he replies.
