FOX Moving Forward With A DAREDEVIL Reboot!

By on 8 June, 2011


 

If it wasn’t enough to have a barrage of superheroes gracing cinema screens this year, FOX is now turning its attention to a reboot of Daredevil, the blind but sonar-powered Marvel superhero – last portrayed on-screen by Ben Affleck in 2003!

 

According to Heat Vision, writer-producer Brad Caleb Kane has been hired to pen the franchise’s relaunch, and the brief is an ambitious one. This reboot will be adapted one of the most influential and acclaimed comic stories of all time, Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s Born Again run from Daredevil.

David Slade is developing and attached to direct the project. Peter Chernin and Dylan Clark of Chernin Entertainment are producing.
 

Despite Kane only producing one feature (he worked on the crime drama ‘Brooklyn’s Finest‘), the writer has gained a reputation for churning out strong script. He worked on DreamWorksView-Master movie, a Richard Pryor biopic with Bill Condon helming the flick, and a draft of ‘The Historian‘, Columbia’s adaptation of the Elizabeth Kostova vampire novel.
 

The script for the Daredevil reboot is in safe hands, as Kane is a huge fan of the superhero and this was evident when it came to winning the job – according to some insiders close to the project.
