The original film was based on a 1967 novel from William F. Nolan and George Clayton John, which depicts a dystopian society set in 2116 wherein all people must agree to be executed at age 21 in an effort to control population.

The 1976 film was directed by Michael Anderson and starred Michael York, Richard Jordan, and Jenny Agutter.

According to the report, Levine will continue his role as creative director at Irrational Games, which released BioShock Infinite in March. The company has no announced games, and Levine said earlier this year that he has "no idea" what the studio will make next.
