Looks Like Fox's Daredevil Is In Dire Straits And Joe Carnahan's Take Is Dead

 

 

Fox had recently set Joe Carnahan to work, trying to formulate a new take on Marvel’s Man Without Fear, Daredevil, so that they could get before the cameras rolling before the ticking clock on their contract runs out.

As it stands, if they don’t get a film in production before October 10th this year, the rights will revert to Marvel and Disney, where the character could be folded into the ever expanding movieverse.

But Carnahan brings bad tidings via Twitter.

 

Now, I can’t imagine Carnahan would say this and then walk away still in charge of the film. Not because they’d sack him for the tweets so much as he’ll know exactly when things are going south on one of his projects. He has enough experience.

It doesn’t look like there’s much time for a realistic attempt to mount another run on this project. Expect Fox to acquire new talent very quickly, or for Matt Murdock to start packing his bags, ready to leave their lot.

Of course, there is that other, already mooted possibility: that Marvel and Disney might left Fox keep Daredevil in return for other characters in their keepsake box. Doesn’t seem any more likely to me.

Whatever happens next would have been a surprise just a few weeks ago. I guess that makes it exciting times.
