Director David Slade (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, 30 Days of Night) took to his Twitter page to address some of the latest rumors.
We confirmed last Wednesday that he is in talks to direct the Daredevil reboot for 20th Century Fox. Slade posted the following about the movie on his account:
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 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 helm The Last Voyage of the Demeter, which is set during Bram Stoker's original "Dracula" and 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.
And what about The Wolverine, now that Darren Aronofsky is out of the picture?
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.
