Director David Slade On Daredevil Reboot

He’s been Twittering like mad, and not just on The Man Without Fear movie – on Deadpool , Demeter and The Wolverine as well

“Without breaking confidentiality, yes Daredevil ,” he says, which we think means “yes, the story is true”. He continues: “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.”

The he moved onto the rumors that he may direct the Deadpool movie:

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

Next up, The Last Voyage of the Demeter , the story of the ship which, in Bram Stoker’s Dracula , transported the vampire Count from Transylvania to Whitby. Says Slade:

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

And finally, may people have been speculating that Slade could take over on The Wolverine now Darren Aronofsky has left the building. Seems speculation is all it is at the moment:

WOLVERINE , there have been no discussions about this project to date. Interesting to see what will happen with that as the again excellent script by Chris McQuarrie was set largely in Japan.”
