Looks like the Carrousel got ‘im.
EW can confirm that Ryan Gosling is no longer attached to the long-in-the-works remake of the sci-fi thriller Logan’s Run, about a dystopian future society in which all citizens are killed after they reach a certain age. In the 1976 film starring Michael York, the age is 30; in the original 1967 sci-f novel by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson, it’s 21. Either way, Gosling wouldn’t qualify; he’s 31.
Gosling’s Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn had been the latest filmmaker attached to helm the project; there’s no word yet on whether he will continue. The duo already reunited for the crime thriller Only God Forgives, due next year.
