Report: Daredevil to Return Under Eclipse Director David Slade
Fox hasn't forgotten about the idle Daredevil franchise parked in its garage, today reportedly enlisting The Twilight Saga: Eclipse director David Slade to revive the comics-hero series.
Word is that Slade will be handling a "continuation" of the series undertaken in 2003 with star Ben Affleck, though the next film reportedly will feature neither Affleck nor any material from the original, performed-better-than-you-thought adaptation. In other words, Daredevil will still be blind with four high-functioning senses, but that's about all you can count on.
The project remains early in the development phase, with no script or casting details to speak of. Cue leading-man gossip in 3... 2...
