Exclusive interview with writer/director Rod Lurie at University of Tampa

6 April 2010 9:06 AM, PDT | Tampa Film Examiner | See recent Tampa Film Examiner news »

The majority of people know all the "big-time" film critics these days, thanks to the Internet.  Former film critic, now writer/director Rod Lurie, was fairly well-known in the 90s in his own right.  For being controversial, amongst other colorful adjectives used to describe him.  A description some still slap him with today.  After years of being an over-the-top film critic, Lurie decide to follow his true passion and become a filmmaker.  Many people in the industry were just hoping a studio would actually let this guy make a film so they can tear it apart.  And they did.  However, their plan of derailing Lurie didn't go as expected.  For he continues to produce, write, and direct films that attract many big-named stars in Hollywood.

At the University of Tampa, Rod Lurie addressed aspiring film students on numerous aspects about the industry they all yearn to be in.  Professor Tom Garrett, »

'Daredevil' Reboot Gets Writer

8 February 2010 2:15 PM, PST | CinemaSpy | See recent CinemaSpy news »

20th Century Fox is charging forward with its 'Daredevil' reboot (god only knows why), and has hired  screenwriter David Scarpa (The Day The Earth Stood Still, The Last Castle) to pen the script.

As many will remember, and even more may be trying to forget, Ben Affleck starred in a Daredevil movie back in 2003 that wasn't received well by either fans or critics. And many diehard fans are of the opinion that its much too soon to reboot this franchise…and if you haven't guessed, we count ourselves among them.

But for the moment, we'll just stick to the facts, and according to Deadline, if Fox doesn't keep cranking out movies based on Marvel superheroes, the rights to the characters will revert back to Marvel.

For his part, studio Co-chairman Tom Rothman has indicated a desire to put some real talent behind this project. "What it really needs »

Fox has hired David Scarpa to write the script of Daredevil 2.0, the sequel to 2003's Daredevil offering from director Mark Steven Johnson that starred Ben Affleck.

Scarpa's credits include The Last Castle, which starred Robert Redford and James Gandolfini, and the 2009 remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still, starring Keanu Reeves.

The producer behind the reboot is Peter Chernin under the production company Regency, and so far there is no word on a release date.

Daredevil 2.0 Gets A Scriptwriter

7 February 2010 4:02 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

We reported back in September that Fox were "quietly developing" a new Daredevil film, if for no other reason than to keep the rights to Ol' Hornhead from reverting back to Marvel / Disney in the not-too-distant future. Now, Deadline Hollywood have revealed the project's scriptwriter. It's David Scarpa.Scarpa has story and co-script credit on the so-so 2001 Dreamworks prison drama The Last Castle, which starred Robert Redford and James Gandolfini, and he also wrote last year's Keanu remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still. Not a hugely inspiring pedigree then, but a lot may depend on which particular comics - if any - Scarpa chooses to adapt. We're suggesting Frank Miller's Born Again or Brian Michael Bendis' recent run would be solid foundations, although we'd hesitate to use a word like "foolproof", given what happened to Miller's Elektra saga last time.Also revealed by Dh are the production company, »

Fox Hires a Writer for the Daredevil Reboot, Making it Semi-Official

6 February 2010 10:16 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Oh let’s face it, you’re not surprised this is actually happening. Not after Marvel rebooted “Hulk” a scant five years after the Ang Lee version. Well Fox has now made it official that they’re rebooting the “Daredevil” franchise (does one semi-successful movie and a flatline spin-off movie count as a franchise?) by announcing the hiring of a writer to pen a script. David Scarpa, who recently wrote the script for “The Day the Earth Stood Still” remake and before that, the prison actioner “The Last Castle”, has been tapped to deliver a new take on the blind lawyer by day/crimefighter by night hero known as Daredevil for the studio. The 2003 original, written and directed by Mark Steven Johnson (he would go on to do “Ghost Rider”), starred Ben Affleck as Matt Murdock, a blind lawyer whose alter ego was the costumed vigilante known as Daredevil.

Daredevil Reboot Confirmed, David Scarpa Writing New Script

5 February 2010 3:50 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Another day, another reboot. Hero Complex has confirmed that Fox / New Regency is moving forward with a Daredevil reboot, hiring screenwriter David Scarpa (The Last Castle, The Day the Earth Stood Still) to work on a new script. No director has been named yet nor have they started casting, so there's not much to go on yet. But they do say this: "Those familiar with the reboot say that the new project would give Scarpa latitude to reinterpret plot points and character nuance." I'm glad he's changing it up a bit, maybe we'll get a better movie this time? I didn't hate the first Daredevil, but it's one of my least favorite superhero movies. We've been hearing rumors about a Daredevil reboot for a few years. It was recently mentioned in a Variety piece last September and we also wrote a big story following Comic-Con way back in 2008 about »

Fox Hires Writer to Reboot Daredevil

5 February 2010 3:32 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

We've known that this would be happening, but a last-minute Friday report from Mike Fleming at Deadline Hollywood confirms Daredevil as the latest superhero reboot. David Scarpa, writer of The Last Castle and Fox's The Day the Earth Stood Still remake, is scripting. No other talent is announced at this point. Peter Chernin, who is also working on that new Planet of the Apes movie, is producing. Just in case you have any doubt about how things will go with other Marvel character movies lodged at studios like Fox, Fleming notes that this reboot is going forward for one simple reason: unless Fox moves forward with Daredevil the studio risks losing the character to Marvel/Disney. Yeah, that means we'll still be hearing about Fantastic Four and likely Silver Surfer movies at some point, too. (The La Times followed up with a report about the reboot, but doesn't offer any »
