The Hollywood Reporter has just announced that Fox’s reboot of the Daredevil movie franchise will be written by Brad Caleb Kane, writer and co-producer on Fringe.
Not just that, but THR also reports Kane will have the task of adapting Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s “Born Again” run from the Daredevil comics. “Kane is a Daredevil fan, and his energy and passion for the material helped him nab the job, according to insiders,” says THR.
You may remember the Ben Affleck starring Daredevil film that was released to a few unhappy fans back in 2003. “David Slade is developing and attached to direct the new Daredevil movie. Peter Chernin and Dylan Clark of Chernin Entertainment are producing,” says THR.
Interesting side note, while he hasn’t produced many feature films, Kane has spent part of his career acting. One of his roles was Tucker Wells, older brother of Andrew on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
So, yes to a new Daredevil movie or no?
