David Slade's (30 Days of Night, Twilight: Eclipse) reboot of 20th Century Fox's Daredevil has found a new writer. Deadline reports that David James Kelly has been tapped to rewrite the script, his first big writing gig. The studio is reportedly basing the screenplay off of Frank Miller/David Mazzucchelli's 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 has another cool superhero reboot in the works for Fantastic Four from Chronicle helmer Josh Trank. It will be interesting to see how a newcomer like David James Kelly brings a fresh perspective to the story. I am not sure if there is really a need to reboot Daredevil, but am interested to see how it turns out.
