Daredevil reboot gets writer, director and lead?

June 18th, 2012 by Big Phil Comments

We’ve heard for a while now that Daredevil was being rebooted, but now there’s names involved…

The rumour mill has been in over-drive ever since it was revealed that David Slade – director of Twilight: Eclipse – may be the new director of a Daredevil movie which will be based on the Marvel Comic character and written by Straw Man scribe James Kelly.
Not that Mr Slade hasn’t enough on his plate with his rumoured involvement in the new Hannibal series (pun intended).
It now appears, if rumours are to be believed, that Josh Hartnett may be playing Daredevil himself. Actor and director previously worked together on 30 Days of Night, and whilst Daredevil is certainly not a horror film, it does have dark undertones due to the character villains.
As always, FTN will keep you posted.
