Certain rumors have been circulating regarding my connection with Warner Bros. in relation to LOGAN'S RUN and I wish to set the record straight.

First of all, having sold all film and television rights to the novel, neither I nor George Clayton Johnson have a "say" in what Warner Bros. will or will not do with the upcoming film remake. We are not writing the script nor have we been consulted on any aspect of the project. I have never contacted, nor have a talked to, producer Joel Silver. Several months ago I did have a meeting with Skip Woods, who (as has been published in the Hollywood trade papers) verified that he had been hired to write and direct the film. He had not, at that point, begun the screenplay and I do not know if he has written one since our meeting.

I am regularly asked when the remake will be released. I have absolutely no way of knowing this. My estimate is that it won't be showing in theaters for at least another two years, but we shall have to wait and see. No cast has been announced nor (so far as I know) has a production schedule been set up. I am not privy to the decisions made by Warner's or Joel Silver, so this is all pure guesswork on my part.

Now, as to the rumor that Paul Camuso and I have been profiting from a "marketing deal" between us and Warner Bros,. this is totally false. My only contact with Paul Camuso relates to some material I have written for his Logan's projected Logan website. We are not in any way linked together in a business agreement with Warner Bros., or with anyone else.
