David Slade comments on Daredevil, Deadpool, Wolverine
Last week it was announced that David Slade would help a reboot of DAREDEVIL, and as he's the newest comic book director, he took to Twitter to comment on that and a few other superhero projects in the works.
Forgot to look at the internet for a few weeks and its a litany of false (and not so far off) rumours. 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 [sic] no relation to the previous Daredevil movie in any way. We are at early planning stages and have not yet discussed any cast.
Haven't read too many rumors myself, but yes, I would hope it would be in a no way related to the first film. Better start discussing a cast soon. If I hear Alex Pettyfer mentioned one more time...
Love DEADPOOL, was never engaged in the (quite fantastic) script, last I heard studio was looking at comedy directors. None of my business.
Comedy directors huh? Sure you want to retire already Kevin Smith?
WOLVERINE, there have been no discussions about this project to date. Interesting to see what will happen with that as the again excellent script by Chris McQuarrie was set largely in Japan. So that’s all the news that’s fit to print.
No discussions with him, or with anyone? Seriously, shelve this until Aronofsky is free in a year or whenever, you won't regret it. Or wait, are they losing the rights to Disney and that's why this has to get made now? I didn't even think of that.
