Last week we reported that Twilight: Eclipse director David Slade was chosen to helm the new Daredevil reboot for Fox. The first adaptation of Daredevil was last seen in 2003 with Ben Affleck donning the red suit and becoming The Man Without Fear. Now the director has taken the time to address Daredevil as well as other projects he is working on via his Twitter account.
Talking about being confirmed to direct Daredevil
So without breaking confidentiality, yes Daredevil, we have a great outline for a very strong character driven take on Mr Matt Murdock.
Commenting on how this will be a reboot
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.
About the rumors that he may direct the Deadpool movie, he says:
Love DEADPOOL, was never engaged in the (quite fantastic) script, last I heard studio was looking at comedy directors. None of my business.
Slade was also attached to direct The Last Voyage of Demeter, a film that focuses on the ship that transports the vampire from Transylvania.
The Last Voyage of the Demeter, Noomi Rapace and Ben Kingsley want to do it, so do I.
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.
