Director David Slade Dispells Daredevil Rumors

Following an off-the-cuff tweet from director David Slade, the Internet was abuzz with rumors suggesting Josh Hartnett was up for the title role in Fox’s upcoming Daredevil reboot.

Slade, who’s been attached to the project for over a year now, got fans a little too excited when he agreeably responded to a hopeful tweet asking about his former 30 Days of Night star portraying the blind lawyer-turned-superhero. However, given that the film is still in the writing stages, Slade later clarified that casting had not even begun and that Hartnett nor any other actor was “being discussed” at this time. But he didn’t rule out the actor completely, adding that Hartnett was “an excellent and underrated actor and a wonderful human being.”

While he was at it, Slade also debunked any rumors that Daredevil would be shot in native 3D, as he is “firmly against” it. What’s more, 20th Century Fox is “rightly against 2D to 3D conversions.”

So there you have it. Slade’s Daredevil will definitely not be in 3D and will also probably not star Hartnett as the Man Without Fear… probably not.
