And the man chosen to write the Daredevil reboot is...

Apr. 30, 2012by:

... who?

Daredevil Born Again coverLet me explain: David James Kelly is the guy who as been hired to do a new draft of the DAREDEVIL reboot, and while he does indeed have representation his only IMDb credit thus far is that of being a post-production assistant on SUNSHINE CLEANING

Which to be fair tells us nothing about his writing ability, as everyone trying to make it in Hollywood often has to work a job or two or six that has little to do with their main talents ("Party Down" anyone?).  And perhaps when the trailer comes out we'll see it was a genius decision to hire Kelly.  I'm certainly ready and willing to be surprised.

Reports also state that the script will be following the plot of "the Frank Miller/David Mazzucchelli 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."

So for you fans of The Man Without Fear out there, what would you pick for a title? DAREDEVIL: BORN AGAIN? Actually, that might actually work well considering this is meant to be a reboot and all...

Extra Tidbit: Conversely, they could copy IRON MAN and do an origin story set in Afghanistan. Meaning the movie could be called DAREDEVIL: BORN AFGHAN.

Daredevil: Born Again?
Sounds good.

Daredevil: Born Afghan?
Let's just say you should've quit the title-giving game while you were ahead.

I honestly liked Daredevil & really do not understand the hate this movie gets & yes the Director's Cut makes it even better. At the same time I am ok with this character getting a reboot.

I agree

Daredevil (2003) is extremely underrated. Not perfect adaptation-wise, but better than most, and a damn fine film. I actually prefer the theatrical cut, as the only difference in the director's cut is 20 minutes of Coolio.

This is all irrelevant because this is made by FOX, not MARVEL. Therefore it is counter-intuitive to the perfect "Marvel Cinematic Universe."

Dizzle speaks the truth. The DD director's cut is a very good film. DAREDEVIL: BORN AGAIN is the exact way they need to go at this point. I hope they get Miller to consult.

R-Rated cut of Daredevil: most underrated and under-appreciated Marvel movie ever.

They could call it, Daredevil: Reborn. That would condense the title a bit.

i've always been a fan of DD and there were some things that i liked about the first film (jennifer garner anyone?)...but, overall, it was flawed and crappy. i blame the director outright 'cos everything i've seen from him is crap.

i'm looking forward to a reboot and hope they do it well.

Because of the way the site is laid out, I initially read this as
"And the man chosen to write the Daredevil reboot is...
Alejandro Stepenberg
...who?"

They're probably just paying some joker peanuts so they don't lose the rights to the character. Sorry.

I really, REALLY hope they get this one right because Daredevil is one of my favorite superheroes of all time.

Misha Collins or Michael C. Hall for Daredevil.

I don't mind this news, as long as the writer turns out to be the right choice.

Michael Pitt is quite too young..i think marvel should should get more mature actor but not too old..like Robert Downey JR..too young face actor like chris evans make cap america look less leadership quality..no wonder avenger posters put iron man most front..shouldn't it be cap in front? IF they changed to a moe mature faced cap america, then it'll be very nice like in the comic..dun get me wrong, i like this cap america too..
