Writer Hired for Daredevil Re-Boot


Rather than ask Ben Affleck to dust off his tights and reprise his role in Daredevil, production company New Regency has decided to start over. David Scarpa, who wrote the 2008 remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still, will write this new take on the blind super hero as Hollywood starts a disturbing new trend of re-booting franchises less than a decade after their original release.
