Daredevil Writer Set

Brad Caleb Kane set to write David Slade's Daredevil reboot.

With X-Men: First Class now in their rear window as it sits atop the box office, 20th Century Fox is pushing forward with their plans to reboot the Daredevil property. They've already found their director by way of David Slade (30 Days of Night, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) jumping on board the production in March.

HR now reports the studio has found a writer to help mold a story into script form for Slade, with the trade announcing that "Fringe" and "Crash" writer Brad Caleb Kane has been enlisted for the screenplay duties. The trade says that Kane is a Daredevil fan, and that his energy and passion for the material helped him nab the job.

As far as the story is concerned, Kane will be adapting Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s "Born Again" run from 1986 issues #227 to #233. It centered on Kingpin learning the true identity of Matt and taking on the hero by attacking his friends and family.

Beautiful, great news and great choice for an adaptation. Now we anxiously await the casting decision. Someone suggested Ben Foster to me but I think he's too short.

A tad off topic, I'm missing Comicscape big time, comic book reviews and comic book news in general big time. Mania needs to get someone to fill Robbo and Chad's shoes, at least to a degree. There's big news from DC and them relaunching all their titles, Marvel is going to put out a Carter from Mars comic book to get the juices flowing for the film and tons of other comic news that just get ignored. COME ON MANIA

I ditto that Wise.  Missing the Comic news!

 Let the casting theories begin.  

I'm glad they're rebooting this.  DD has always been one of my favorites.

Wiseguy - I'm with you too.  If I knew half of what I think I know about comics, I'd apply for the job.  But I don't so I won't.

I´ve always loved Michael Clark Dunkan as Kingpin, it won't bother me if he returns to the role.

for the new kingpin,is king kong bundy still alive?

Start from scracth, No Michael Clark Dunkan as Kingpin, No Ben Affleck and then maybe this could be something watchable.

I also miss the comic news...

In addition to a lack of Comic news...what about some video game news?  Some sort of E3 coverage?

The worst news possible in the Marvel Universe,  another Daredevil movie!!!!!!   One was enough fo a life time.  Please don't do it,  I beg of you Marvel Studios!!!!!

krathwardroid 6/8/2011 8:23:53 AM

I'm all for anything to wash away that horrible 2003 movie. 

jedibanner 6/8/2011 8:26:13 AM

Creaymygnome, Mania does have video game news every Thursday, it's called ''Level Up'' and it's a great coverage on all gaming things happening.

It would be ok to do another Daredevil but, make it more mature, less cartony and just because Ben Affleck won't be in it, that's the first sign of improvement.
