David Slade's Daredevil News May Not Be Much News At All!

31 May 2011 8:20 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

At the end of last week director David Slade tweeted that he would be bringing us some official Daredevil news this week. Well, that "news" may not be much more than we already knew. Check out this tweet from Latino Review's El Mayimbe.. So David Slade's big Daredevil news is that either his deal is now officially closed or that Kyle Killen delivered his draft. He sounds pretty sure about it, but obviously we will have to hear from Slade ourselves. Anyway, I really wan't expecting too much more than this at such an early stage...just a tad more on the story maybe! Anyway, even if this is all he has to reveal to us, at least it means things are officially up and running on the project. Oh, he also says Josh Hartnett will be playing Matt Murdock;) Article image courtesy of Obsessedwithfilm By »

Duncan Jones Is Considering The Wolverine

11 April 2011 11:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Wolverine is currently in limbo as 20th Century Fox looks for a worthy director to replace Darren Aronofsky, who left the Marvel one-off for family reasons.

Duncan Jones, who recently directed Source Code, and David Slade, who next has the Untitled Daredevil Reboot on his plate, have both been sited as worthy successors to this highly coveted throne.

Today, Duncan Jones semi-confirmed that he is considering taking over the directorial duties on The Wolverine. Though, talks with 20th Century Fox have not yet taken place. Here is what he said.

"Who knows what'll be coming up next - I have a lot of meetings and catching-up to do when I get back to La. The Wolverine is more interesting to me than Batman. A good Wolverine film could be an amazing thing."

The Wolverine was scheduled to shoot this summer, but it looks like Hugh Jackman may be starring »

David Slade Talks Daredevil Reboot

21 March 2011 12:58 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director David Slade, who we just reported last week is attached to direct 20th Century Fox's Daredevil Reboot, wanted to give an update to clear up any rumors about the Daredevil Reboot, as well as Deadpool and The Wolverine, via his Twitter page. Here is what he had to say:

"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.

Love Deadpool, was never engaged in the (quite fantastic) script, last I heard studio was looking at comedy directors. None of my business.

The Last Voyage of Demeter, Noomi Rapace and Ben Kingsley want to do it, so do I.

The Wolverine, there have been no discussions about this project to date. »

The Wolverine Not Rushing to Find a Director

19 March 2011 10:40 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There are varying reports swirling around this morning that 20th Century Fox is in no hurry to attach another director to its high profile Marvel Studios one-off The Wolverine. As you may know, original director Darren Aronofsky dropped out of the project, concerned that the extended shoot in Japan would keep him away from his son.

Though 20th Century Fox released a statement saying they planned to "regroup and move forward aggressively", a source close to the lingering project is saying otherwise. Apparently, there is no short list of directors being considered at this point in time, and the recent natural disaster in Japan, where much of this story takes place, is causing many unforeseen roadblocks that could stall The Wolverine even further.

Here is what the insider had to say.

"I think we're going to let it air out a bit before we approach another director. The one good thing, »

Robert Pattinson Up for Daredevil?

17 March 2011 12:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After the news surfaced that David Slade is directing the Untitled Daredevil Reboot, talk has now turned to who will star as Matt Murdock. There is speculation that Robert Pattinson may be in talks for the lead role.

David Slade directed Robert Pattinson in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse last year, and it seems there is "some kind of talk" about Robert Pattinson reuniting with the director for Daredevil. Robert Pattinson is currently shooting his last movie as the vampire Edward Cullen, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2.

The Untitled Daredevil Reboot is said to be a "close cousin" to other superhero reboots. Here's what an inside source recently had to say about David Slade's pitch for the reboot.

"It's a bit (like) Batman Begins. The bad guy will learn who Daredevil really is and tries to destroy him - but not via the usual methods."

David Slade To Direct 'Daredevil'

15 March 2011 3:18 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Let The Casting Speculation Begin!

"Daredevil" is being brought back to the big screen and David Slade is set to direct. Variety reports that the "Twilight: Eclipse" and "30 Days Of Night" helmer has landed the gig over at 20th Century Fox and the choice is pretty uninspired but not exactly surprising. David Slade was in the running for "The Wolverine" until Darren Aronofsky--who is total buds with Hugh Jackman--threw his hat in the ring. And coming off "Twilight: Eclipse," Slade has shown he can work well within a franchise setting. Frankly, the major factor for us will be who… »
