The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Fox has hired Fringe writer and producer Brad Caleb Kane to write the script for a Daredevil reboot. Kane has been hired to adapt Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s “Born Again” story from Miller’s run on Daredevil. The attention for this reboot likely comes from the success of Fox’s relaunch of the X-Men movie fanchise with X-Men: First Class.

David Slade will be directing the new Daredevil movie, with Peter Chernin and Dylan Clark producing it. According to THR one of the reasons Kane got the job writing the movie is because he is a huge Daredevil fan and has passion for the project.
