David Slade will be directing a new Daredevil movie, and today we hear that it will be nothing like the previous film.
David Slade tweeted a while ago that there is an outline for the Daredevil movie, but it will have no relation to the older film. Right now there is no cast and the script is still in the early development stages. Fox chief Tom Rothman confirmed the other day that “It’s in development; we’re working on the script.”
Deadline reports that David James Kelly will be rewriting the script based on the Born Again arc by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli. The story has Kingpin finally discovering the secret identity of Daredevil and destroying his life. There will also most likely be some mention of Murdock’s origin story.
