From Deadline Hollywood:
EXCLUSIVE: Latest Marvel Hero To Reboot
MIKE FLEMING wrote:It's Daredevil, the movie named after the sight-challenged hero played originally by Ben Affleck. Regency is mounting the remake with former News Corp No. 2 Peter Chernin producing. Writing the redo is screenwriter David Scarpa, who scripted The Day The Earth Stood Still for Fox, which will distribute Daredevil 2.0 or whatever it's going to be called. The reason this is happening is simple: Hollywood studios with Marvel superheroes need to keep reinventing these Marvel movie franchises or the rights revert back to Disney-based Marvel. Fortunately, the properties are as resilient as the indestructible superheroes themselves.

I'll probably be the only person to admit this...but I didn't hate the Affleck movie. It wasn't the greatest...but I hardly found it as bad as people say.

Nope....I'd agree...the Director's cut is even better...but still flawed and a bit more awkwardly paced/ directed/ acted in a few places...but I rank it above Tim Burton's Batman actually. Daredevil doesn't have the iconic score or Jack's Joker but it has a little more depth and some decent, melancholy super-heroics that attempts to stay pretty close to the comics while at the same time doing its own "real world" take

I wish they'd just let Marvel/Disney have the property back so we can see him in the Marvelverse.

I liked the Daredevil movie as well. It's nowhere near as terrible as people seem to think it is.

I liked the Affleck DD, it had some great fight scenes, a decent plot based (very loosely) on one of the greatest story lines in comics. It's only weakness IMHO was the lack of a costume for Bullseye. But I'm willing to give a reboot a try. Look how that worked out for the Hulk.

I loved the original Daredevil because of how absurd it was, and Bullseye didn't bother me. It certainly boded better for me than if he were in his full comic book getup.

The Daredevil movie was really bad. The Director's Cut is slightly less bad.

It needs a reboot if you ask me. Hopefully this one will have 100% less Evanescence music videos.

Fox's 'Daredevil' Relaunch Hires 'Fringe' Writer Brad Caleb Kane
Borys Kit wrote: With X-Men: First Class having successfully relaunched its X-Men frachise, Fox is turning its attention to the reboot of Daredevil, the blind but sonar-powered Marvel superhero last played on screen by Ben Affleck in 2003.

Brad Caleb Kane, a writer-producer on cult Fox TV show Fringe, has been hired to pen the franchise’s relaunch, which has high ambitions: Kane is being asked to adapt one of the most influential and acclaimed comic stories of all time, Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s "Born Again" run from Daredevil.

Fox is tackling the prpject with Regency.

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

While Kane only has one produced feature to his credit -- he worked on the crime drama Brooklyn’s Finest -- the scribe has gained a following around town for that strong script. He worked on DreamWorks’ View-Master movie, a Richard Pryor biopic that has Bill Condon attached to direct, and a draft of The Historian, Columbia’s planned adaptation of the Elizabeth Kostova vampire novel.

Kane is a Daredevil fan, and his energy and passion for the material helped him nab the job, according to insiders.

'Daredevil' reboot gets a screenwriter, settles on 'Born Again' storyline

Drew "Moriarty" McWeeny wrote:David Slade may direct the best-known storyline from the comic

Has 20th Century Fox finally turned a corner in terms of the way they're handling their various superhero properties?

Anyone who sat through "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" and "X-Men: First Class" would have to ask that question, because they are such radically different ways of handling the same basic material that it doesn't seem possible that the same people are behind both films.

David Slade, one of the directors who came close to directing "The Wolverine" before Darren Aronofsky got the job, obviously made a strong impression on the upper brass at Fox, because they ended up hiring him for "Daredevil" instead. While some might view that project as tainted goods, Slade seemed genuinely excited by the opportunity, and he's been playing his cards pretty close to his vest over the last couple of months.

Tonight, thanks to the news breaking about the hiring of Brad Caleb Kane to write the film, we also have our first look at what it is that Slade has in mind for the reboot, and it looks like he's going straight for the best-known story from the run of the best writer who's ever worked on the character.

"Born Again" was probably the darkest moment in Frank Miller's run on the title, and I mean that in the best possible way. Miller realized that the appeal of Daredevil was tied, at least in part, to how much misery got heaped on the character. Matt Murdock made a fantastic punching bag in Miller's hands, and the most fiendish thing Miller ever did involved Karen Page, the secretary to Foggy Nelson and Matt Murdock who was also one of the most important people in Matt's life. When she set out to become an actress, Miller started piling on the pain, leaving her addicted to drugs and starring in porno by the time he was finished. The Kingpin found her in this sorry state, and he used her weakness to get out of her the one thing she had left to sell: Daredevil's secret identity. What he does with it is truly crazy, and it's one of the great Marvel stories of all time.

I read a Richard Pryor biopic that Kane wrote, and he's been working on "Fringe" more recently. I hope that Kane and Slade, working together, can find the right tone for "Daredevil." I like the Affleck movie, and at the time it was released, I felt like it was an important step for Marvel overall. The genre's growing up more and more each year, and what worked in 2003 feels like a step along the way now, and there's major room for improvement. This is strong material they're using as a source, and it could make for a great "Daredevil" film.

Here's the thing, though… just because "X-Men: First Class" works as well as it does, we shouldn't break out the champagne just yet. I've talked to people who worked on the film, as well as people who worked on "The Last Stand" and "Wolverine," and honestly, the process on all three films was roughly the same. There's a lot of luck involved in the way "First Class" came out, and it was just a matter of degrees between the last two films in the series and this new one. I wouldn't say that anyone "learned" much of anything from this new film. It all comes down to filmmakers busting ass to try and make a great film, and even on the movies I didn't like at Fox, I'm sure there were filmmakers busting ass to try and make a great film. That's certainly the attitude Slade seems to have, and now, we know he's working with a great spine for the film.

Right now, there's no date on "Daredevil" and no one's been signed to play the part, but we'll keep you posted as things develop.

AWESOME. This is EXACTLY what I was hoping for. Born Again is the best Daredevil story there is.

That's promising. I've always liked the character of Daredevil a lot though his method of transportation has always left me baffled. If you've ever been to NYC you know that there's no way in hell someone can grabble around a city like that.

Yeah, Batman makes sense. His grappling gun can actually fire into brick walls, and he can glide by using his cape. But DD has to essentially lasso objects sturdy enough to hold his 210 lb frame and these objects also have to be an arm's throw away. :?

Thinking too much about it am I, well yes, but it's something little that bugs me. This being the internet I had to share it lol

David James Kelly Rewriting ‘Daredevil’ Reboot For David Slade

Not every viable Marvel Comics hero is in The Avengers. 20th Century Fox is revving a reboot of Daredevil, and the studio is setting David James Kelly to rewrite of the script, for David Slade to direct. The 30 Days of Night and Twilight Saga: Eclipse helmer became attached last year, and reports have the studio working off the Frank Miller/David Mazzucchelli story arc Born Again, as The Kingpin uncovers the superhero’s secret identity, and uses it to turn blind lawyer Matt Murdoch’s life upside down. Fox, which also has the X-Men franchise and its spinoffs, also has Chronicle helmer Josh Trank working on a reboot of Fantastic Four. Kelly is repped by WME.

Fox, Marvel talk swap as clock ticks on 'Daredevil'
Character-rights deal could buy time for Carnahan, Fox reboot
Jeff Sneider & Rachel Abrams wrote:The clock is ticking for 20th Century Fox to put its "Daredevil" reboot into production before character rights revert to Marvel -- but Fox chairman Tom Rothman and Marvel brass have been talking about a tradeoff that would allow the comicbook franchise to remain at Fox past its Oct. 10 deadline.

One reason for the backroom dealings: Fox is in discussions with Joe Carnahan to direct what's been described as a "Frank Miller-esque, hardcore 70s thriller" take on blind Hell's Kitchen superhero Matt Murdock -- a vision that would deviate from Disney/Marvel's family-friendly tone. Carnahan has yet to receive an official offer, though multiple sources tell Variety that he's the choice.

But Fox also has something Marvel wants.

Sources say Marvel would give Fox more time to make "Daredevil" in return for the rights to use characters from the "Fantastic Four" universe, including the giant, world-devouring supervillain Galactus, rumored to play a key role in future Marvel pics. Marvel is also eyeing future use of the Silver Surfer, who in the comicbooks brokered a deal to serve as Galactus' herald in order to save his home planet.

Fox owns rights to the Silver Surfer as part of its deal for "Fantastic Four," which the studio is also rebooting with "Chronicle" helmer Josh Trank.

At this point, the ball is said to be in Fox's court, with talks expected to resume later this week. But as of right now, Fox needs to start lensing by the Oct. 10 deadline to keep "Daredevil" in-house.

Neither Fox, Marvel nor reps for Carnahan would comment on the dealings.

David Slade was previously attached to direct the "Daredevil" reboot, which boasts a recent draft by David James Kelly. Chernin Entertainment is producing the pic.

"Daredevil" would mark a return to the Fox lot for Carnahan, who butted heads with the studio while directing "The A-Team"; the two sides appear to have worked out their differences. After the success Open Road Films had with Carnahan's Liam Neeson-starrer "The Grey," Fox quickly began developing Carnahan's actioner "Continue," which was believed to be his next project. CAA-repped helmer is also developing a fresh take on "Death Wish" for MGM.
