David Slade To Direct New Daredevil Film

David Slade. Oh well. It could have been so much worse.

The man behind Hard Candy, 30 Days of Night, whatever the last Twilight film was and (if it still goes ahead as planned) the new “Dracula’s boat-trip” picture, The Last Voyage of the Demeter, has signed up to bring another Daredevil picture to the silver screen.

So is to be a sequel? Or a reboot? Variety confuse matters somewhat with the following statement:

The untitled film will be a continuation of the superhero pic, and will not contain material from the Ben Affleck-toplined version released by Fox in 2003.

A continuation, but without “material” from the last version… a seqboot, then. Unless “a continuation of the superhero pic” means “an evolution of the genre, to elevated new forms.”

Which it doesn’t.
