Daredevil Reboot Gets Writer David James Kelly
As Marvel's The Avengers impresses overseas, Marvel's stable of superhero characters continues to dominate the news. We know that 20th Century Fox is rebooting Daredevil with director David Slade. Now they've hired David James Kelly (who has no substantial film credits to his name) to pen the screenplay for this latest Marvel outing.

Well, a modest gain is better than no gain — and certainly much better than either modest or immodest losses. Compared to the Jan. 1-3, 2010, weekend, however, this weekend's figures are down 28% as a result of James Cameron's Avatar phenomenon. Now, ignoring Avatar as if it had never existed, and adding the revenues of early 2010's three runners-up — Guy Ritchie/Robert Downey Jr's Sherlock Holmes, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel,
