I'm a big fan of Bryan Singer. I've liked everything the man has directed, and, yes, that includes Superman Returns, which I am happy to say I actually love. I think he was a very interesting choice to spearhead Warner Brothers' remake of Logan's Run and probably would have delivered a very entertaining update to the vintage sci-fi property had his film come to pass.

That said, I think Bryan Singer leaving the Logan's Run remake may end up proving to be the best thing that ever happened to it. His absence paved the way for commercial director Carl Rinsch (whose ads should be very familiar to Sci-Fi Squad readers by now) to take over the helm. And now it looks like the WB has picked the scribe who will be navigating the not-so-utopian waters: Alex Garland.

Heat Vision are reporting that Garland is merely in negotiations to write the script right now, but the studios' mere interest in bringing him on board already has me even more interested in the project. I know Garland's third acts aren't often every one's cup of tea, but I actually love that dark, anything-can-happen edge that runs through all of his scripts; and in case you need reminding of what those scripts are, Garland penned The Beach, 28 Days Later, and Sunshine. He's also currently attached to both Halo and Judge Dredd, as well, so if you, like me, are a fan of Garland's films, the early 2010s are shaping up to be a very promising few years for science fiction.
