David James Kelly Rewriting Daredevil Reboot

Deadline reports that Twentieth Century Fox has set David James Kelly to rewrite the script for the Daredevil reboot to be directed by David Slade (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, 30 Days of Night).

The film will adapt Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s “Born Again” storyline, which ran in Daredevil #227-233 in 1986. The story involves an intense personal attack on Matt Murdock’s friends and family following Wilson Fisk (aka The Kingpin) learning his true identity.

The studio has not set a release date for the new film yet.
