Daredevil details from director David Slade

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: This may surprise you, but news that Marvel’s blind superhero Daredevil is getting a cinematic second chance has me more excited than, say, the nugget of info that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been added to Chris Nolan’s Batman sequel. We kind of know what we are going to get from Nolan. But Daredevil deserves better than what he received in 2003, and I’m hoping for brighter (well, actually, darker) things in his future.

Hiring director David Slade (“Hard Candy,” “30 Days of Night”) appears to be a step in the right direction. Even his “Twilight” installment, “Eclipse,” had a sharper edge than its predecessors. Now we’ll have to wait and see what material he has to work with.

But Slade took to Twitter on Sunday to elaborate on Daredevil, Wolverine, and more.

“Forgot to look at the internet for a few weeks and its a litany of false (and not so far off) rumours,” Slade Tweeted. “So without breaking confidentiality, yes Daredevil, we have a great outline for a very strong character driven take on Mr Matt Murdock. It will bare no relation to the previous Daredevil movie in any way. We are at early planning stages and have not yet discussed any cast.”

Though I’m not sure who asked (because this rumor didn’t seem to be making the rounds), Slade weighed in on the planned “Deadpool” film by saying, “Love DEADPOOL, was never engaged in the (quite fantastic) script, last I heard studio was looking at comedy directors. None of my business.”

He also chimed in on the Wolverine production, which recently lost Darren Aronofsky.

“There have been no discussions about this project to date,” Slade Tweeted. “Interesting to see what will happen with that as the again excellent script by Chris McQuarrie was set largely in Japan.”

Slade ends with, “So that’s all the news that’s fit to print.”

But if you are interested in Daredevil, comics or movies, Slade is one that you need to be following on Twitter.
