James Mangold Confirms Black And White Version Of Logan For Home Release

Logan director James Mangold says that he is already preparing to work on a black and white cut of the film when it comes out on Blu-ray.

Last week, it was claimed that Mangold would produce a color-free version of the superhero movie that would be available for purchase once the film ended its theatrical run. However, it was only today, when the director spoke to Deadline about the project, that he officially verified plans for the cut. Acknowledging that he and others involved with the production were surprised by the extent to which black and white was viewed as an impediment to audience enjoyment by some, Mangold nevertheless expressed excitement and said that the finished product will look “very handsome”.

CBR.com, the source of this story, shares the following synopsis and casting info for the movie:

Directed by James Mangold, “Logan” is set in the near future, years after the epilogue of 2014’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” In it, a weary Logan, whose healing factor is failing, cares for an ailing Professor X in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.

Now in theaters nationwide, “Logan” stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Dafne Keen and Stephen Merchant.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I’ve made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I’m not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school’s TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
