Fringe Writer Attached To Daredevil Reboot

Fringe Writer Attached To Daredevil Reboot

The relaunch of the “X-Men” franchise has received a lot of praise since opening last weekend, but it’s far from the only reboot hitting screens over the next few years. “Daredevil,” which was made into a movie in 2003, is also being set up for a big feature-film comeback — and it may have snagged a hot writer to help it along.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brad Caleb Kane, a writer and producer from “Fringe,” has been tapped to write the reboot’s script. It won’t just be any script, though: the movie will be based on Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s celebrated “Born Again” arc from the comics.

A few other names are also attached to the project so far, including David Slade as director, as well as producers Peter Chernin and Dylan Clark.

In the 1986 “Born again” story arc, Daredevil struggles to rebuild his life after losing everything — including his sanity — at the hands of the Kingpin.

Besides “Fringe,” Kane has worked on “Brooklyn’s Finest,” and the yet-to-be-released films “View-Master” from Dreamworks and “The Historian,” based on the Elizabeth Kostova novel. Kane himself is an admitted “Daredevil” fan, and the report indicates that “his energy and passion for the material helped him nab the job.”
