Fringe Writer Hired To Reboot Daredevil Movie Franchise with Adaptation of Frank Miller & David Mazzucchelli’s Born Again

If they can pull it off with an adaptation worthy of the original material, this would be a great way to restart the Daredevil franchise: Hollywood Reporter says that Fox has hired Brad Caleb Kane of the tv show Fringe to write a Daredevil movie script based on the legendary Daredevil: Born Again run by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli.

Brad Caleb Kane, a writer-producer on cult Fox TV show Fringe, has been hired to pen the franchise’s relaunch, which has high ambitions: Kane is being asked to adapt one of the most influential and acclaimed comic stories of all time, Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s “Born Again” run from Daredevil.

Fox is tackling the project with Regency.

David Slade is developing and attached to direct the new Daredevil movie. Peter Chernin and Dylan Clark of Chernin Entertainment are producing.
