Daredevil lands new director, will recast leads


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: After taking a crack at vampires and werewolves for the “Twilight Saga,” director David Slade is setting his sites on a horned hero from Marvel Comics’ roster.

Slade will helm the next “Daredevil” movie, which is expected to advance the story put forth in the 2003 version but will start over with a different cast (sorry, Ben Affleck).

EW.com reports that Former Fox chairman Peter Chernin “will produce through his company Chernin Entertainment,” but that “no screenwriter has been announced” at this time.

While the rest of the Internet blows up with casting suggestions, I’m going to pitch Kevin Smith as a “Daredevil” screenwriter. Smith knows comics, and really knows Daredevil. He’d be a great selection. And we all know that it doesn’t matter who you cast to wear the mask in a superhero film, so long as the story works for both fans and general audiences.

More on David Slade’s “Daredevil” as it develops.
