Silver: No Helmer For Logan Yet

Joel Silver, whose production company Silver Pictures is developing a remake of the 1976 science-fiction cult classic Logan's Run, told SCI FI Wire that no new director has come on board since Bryan Singer (Superman Returns) dropped out.

"Bryan's not going to be doing it," Silver said in an interview following a press conference about his current television project, the vampire series Moonlight, at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills, Calif., on July 19. "I'm working on it now and hopefully it will come about."

As for his other genre projects, Silver said that the film adaptation of Masters of the Universe also remains in the early stages of development. "Same thing. We're working on that now too," he said, adding: "I'm in the middle of six movies now, so I have my hands full."

Silver's live-action film adaptation of the Japanese anime series Speed Racer is currently shooting in Germany under the direction of the Wachowski brothers (the Matrix films), with Emile Hirsch (Lords of Dogtown) in the title role. According to Silver, the production so far looks "fantastic."

"It's a phenomenal thing," Silver said. "It's just incredible. ... My son is 5 years old, and I brought him to the set in Germany three weeks ago, and he was out of his mind, because he loves the show, and he gets to see Speed, Trixie, Mom and Pops and Sparky and Chim-Chim. I mean, it's just wild." —Cindy White
