With The Avengers record-breaking box office performance filling the Marvel money bin with an extra twelve feet of swimming dollars, it only makes sense that Warner Bros is like, “Hey! Me too!” And so, they’ve brought in Gangster Squad writer Will Beall to pen a new draft of a Justice League movie.

You might remember that Justice League almost went before cameras a few years back but was killed due to the WGA writer’s strike. We were all relieved back then but has your mood toward this project change in light of The Avengers success? I still feel like bringing the teaming of a vigilante, an alien, another alien, a guy who got powers from an alien, an Amazonian princess, and a chemically-mutated really fast guy to the screen is going to be a clunky endeavor. Have some respect for the fans. We’re still hurting from Green Lantern.

‘Gangster Squad’ Writer Remaking ‘Logan’s Run’, Everything Else http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/gangster-squad-writer-remaking-logans-run-everything-else/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/gangster-squad-writer-remaking-logans-run-everything-else/#comments Fri, 01 Apr 2011 15:46:42 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=204944 Remaking classic films seems easy. Just take the original and add zombies. Or Rihanna.

Will Beal is a remake machine. The Tales From The Gangster Squad writer has recently been given the keys to Hollywood with scripting duties on both the Logan’s Run and Lethal Weapon remakes.

Logan’s Run tells the story of a futuristic society where citizens are murdered off on their 30th birthdays and the one man who tries to escape the mandatory death sentence. There are no minivans in this society. Lethal Weapon, of course, tells the tale of mismatched partners who beat the crap out of each other and do cool things like kill bad guys with surfboards and pool covers.

As the former cop Beal’s work hasn’t hit theaters yet, it’s hard to form an opinion one way or the other about how well he’ll do with these iconic properties. But I’ll just go ahead and say good job because I don’t want any trouble with the police. Remakes are a good thing that should happen always forever. Also, that girl told me she was 25.

I would have never rented her that car otherwise. (THR)
