Daredevil reboot hires “Fringe” writer to tackle “Born Again” story

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Marvel Studios has had its fair share of successes. But every time an “X-Men: First Class” reaffirms to fans that the studio can handle cherished material properly, we wonder why popular heroes like Daredevil and the Fantastic Four can’t get a fair shake.

The former’s getting another attempt at the big screen after the acceptable (but far from exceptional) Ben Affleck version back in 2003, and news of the potential storyline should excite longtime readers of Hell’s Kitchen’s guardian.

“Fringe” scribe Brad Caleb Kane has been hired to pen the next “Daredevil” screenplay, according to THR, and will adapt Frank Miller’s graphic “Born Again” storyline. The Kingpin is the main villain in the plot, using Daredevil’s secret identity to slowly destroy his life and damage everyone around the blind superhero.

David Slade (“Twilight: Eclipse”) will direct this next Daredevil story, and we’re hoping he’s allowed to go down the dark alleys in Miller’s work. You’d need several films to map out the extensive happenings in the “Born Again” story, so Kane faces a challenge of filtering through some difficult obstacles for our hero to overcome. But if Slade and Kane can synch up on the tone of this film, we could be in for a dark, dark treat.
