And from Sci-Fi Wire "Kosinski, who last month signed on to helm the remake of Logan’s Runfor Warner Brothers, will oversee the visual development of the projectand have input on the script, which is being written by Lost writers Eddie Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. Story details are being kept secret." Talk about cool stuff on the movie front…. Tron, Robotech… jeebus!
