Daredevil Reboot Born Again

If you're a fan and long-time reader of Daredevil like me, this is a double dip of good news.

The David Slade-directed reboot of the 2003 adaptation, which we discussed here, has hired Brad Caleb Kane on to pen the script. Kane is a writer and producer on Fox's brilliant TV series Fringe, which means the project is in the right hands. It also turns out that Kane is a Daredevil fan and has decided to adapt Frank Miller's Born Again run from the mid-80s as the plot for his film.

Born Again is the definitive Daredevil tale! Karen Page, Matt Murdock's former lover, has traded away the Man Without Fear's secret identity for a drug fix. Now, Daredevil must find strength as the Kingpin of Crime wastes no time taking him down as low as a human can get.

If done right, this could be a great and decidedly different comic book film. With Slade directing and Kane at the keyboard, I have high hopes for this relaunch.

  1. The story does sound good... but how can it really be a reboot when there's only been ONE movie? Elektra doesn't count since it's a spin-off rather than a sequel.
