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.
