With the cavalcade of superhero projects coming in the wake of films like the original X-MEN films and SPIDER-MAN projects, it’s becoming time when we start to see a few of these franchises get the reboot treatment.

X-MEN: FIRST CLASS and the upcoming SPIDER-MAN reboot will be the first few films to restart what were some of the franchise to launch this golden age of comic book cinema, and now, they have another member.

THR is reporting that David Slade has finally found a writer for his upcoming reboot of the DAREDEVIL film franchise, in the form of Brad Caleb Kane.  Now, while I’m not comparing DAREDEVIL to the aforementioned blockbuster franchises, this could definitely prove to be an intriguing reboot, particularly due to what storyline they plan on looking at.

The film will focus on the Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli run on the book, and their “Born Again” storyline.  Kane has been grinding his teeth on Fringe and the film BROOKLYN’S FINEST, as well as films like his upcoming Richard Pryor film, VIEW-MASSTER and a novel adaptation THE HISTORIAN.

Personally, as a fan of Daredevil, and especially the Miller/Mazzucchelli run (although I think the Bendis run may be better), I think this is a perfect film to toss back into the ether.  It’s a wonderful character, and given the right set of cooks in the kitchen, it could be equally as fantastic.  I’m a big fan of Slade’s work, so hopefully he’ll be the perfect man for the job.
