    That's true, but the part about the writer is brand new.

    DAREDEVIL Reboot



    From Variety Fri., Sep. 5, 2008: Fox's not-so-hot summer at the movies
    Though Fox has no plans for a major overhaul, the studio has scheduled a strategy meeting to assess the status of its superheroes, a group sorely missed this summer.

    On the agenda, Fox will mull the possibility of more "X-Men" spinoffs, including a young-X-Men project as well as "Deadpool," based on a character played by Ryan Reynolds in "Wolverine."

    The studio is even considering reviving the "Daredevil" property.

    IESB: Soon?

    IESB: I have to ask.

    TR: You've lost a lot a weight now Robert and you are going to live for a long time, this is the movie business, nothing is soon.
    ...says THIS REPORT at IESB, which also discusses Rothman's belief that a DAREDEVIL reworking would work best when guided by a director with a genuine vision (a la Christopher Nolan).

    Rothman's statements are confounding given Fox's legendary disregard for artistic vision, and frequent interference with/contempt for film maker (Alex Proyas being one example, Mathieu Kassovitz being another).

    Ugly and awkward, Mark Steven Johnson's 2003 DAREDEVIL film actually looked like it was made by a blind man...a dubious accomplishment to be sure. Maybe they'll get luckier this time.

    Ands, you know I have to say it, I say "Shia" for Matt Murdock!

    Fox Hires Writer to Reboot Daredevil

    EXCLUSIVE: Latest Marvel Hero To Reboot

The reason this is happening is simple: Hollywood studios with Marvel superheroes need to keep reinventing these Marvel movie franchises or the rights revert back to Disney-based Marvel. Fortunately, the properties are as resilient as the indestructible superheroes themselves.

    Tom Rothman really annoys me.

    Also, the Daredevil movie was not too bad but it was cheesy. I really watched it for Jennifer Garner's character.

    Rothman is a tool and Fox is legendarily anti-franchise. See also: Alien 4.

    It is being produced by the same team who did the recent Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
    From THR 6/7/2011:
    Peter Chernin and Dylan Clark of Chernin Entertainment are producing.

    From Collider December 7th, 2011:
    Fox Executive Tom Rothman Updates on the Status of a Sequel to X-MEN: FIRST CLASS and Reboots for DAREDEVIL and FANTASTIC FOUR
    Quote Originally Posted by Brendan Bettinger
    Ever since 2008′s Iron Man, Marvel Studios has carved out a profitable niche in Hollywood independently financing the film adaptations of the Marvel comics. However, because of the nature of film rights, a few of Marvel’s most popular properties are housed at other studios. Fox has three: X-Men, Daredevil, and Fantastic Four. In a recent interview, Fox executive Tom Rothman stressed the studio is eager to continue development on the next chapter in those respective stories—a sequel to X-Men: First Class and reboots for Daredevil and Fantastic Four.

    Critics loved First Class, and $353 million worldwide is nothing to sneeze at. But it is the lowest grosser among the five movies in the X-Men franchise. Still, Fox would like a sequel if they can get the script right:
    “It’s ‘go’ in the sense that we’re trying like hell. We’re trying as hard as we can. We really want to do it. We’re planning to do it. But the reason, in addition to [Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy] and Matthew Vaughn, that it was as good as it was that the script was really good. The key to making a great continuing franchise is to have a great script, so we’re working hard on it.”
    We credit director Matthew Vaughn for much of what made First Class great. But it is not certain that Vaughn will return to direct future X-Men installments:
    “I know he’d like to. We certainly would like him to. But it’s a matter of, as I said, getting a script that’s really worthy.”
    As for Daredevil and Fantastic Four, Rothman confirmed that Fox is working on reboots for both, and indicated what they’d like to accomplish:
    “Daredevil is still with David Slade. It’s in development now. We’re working on it and Fantastic Four. I think for all of us, the bar has been raised, so we’ve got to aim high now. Marvel’s done a terrific job with their films. Where our Marvel movies are concerned or other movies like that. It’s like what we had with Planet of the Apes this summer. I think it’s important for us to really aim high and deliver an A-level experience to the audience.”
    Fox, and Rothman in particular, has taken heat in the past for a cynical, corporate approach to filmmaking. But the studio did provide a great summer for film geeks with the one-two punch of First Class and Rise of the Planet of the Apes. I can only dream that is, as Rothman implies, the status quo at Fox from here on out.

    The 2003 wasn't too bad but just ok, The R-rated cut was better though but this reboot should do the character right.

    I think Hollywood is starting to make a mockery of the whole movie making process, they're probably thinking "instead of coming up with fresh new idea's let's take something we already have and reboot it, the mindless minions won't care, they watch anything and everything we put out and we'll be laughing all the way to the bank... suckers!"

    Majestic, what made Nolan's Batman reboot different? was it because the series started in 1989 and not in 2003? afterall we never had a Batman origin film before shown on film except briefly in a flashback in 1989's movie and Begins was the first Batman live-action film to tell his origin.

    Did it made better sense to reboot Batman?

    The Batman reboot is THE one and only exception, he didn't just reboot it. The took the franchise in a totally different and better direction. Just because his formula worked doesn't give the "Hollywood movie machine" the right to reboot anything and everything. Daredevil was shite and nowhere on par to the original Batman movies, but hey... as much as i dislike this idea, they're going to do it anyway and the mindless minions will happily fork out their hard earned money to watch the visual vomit.

    I agree they should not reboot, but when i say this i hope Ben and the beautiful, gorgeous Jennifer Garner will return for their roles again.
    They might be mom and dad for their children but they are still actors as well so i hope they treat these roles proffesionally.
    I love Jennifer Garner she's sexy as hell and awesome so i hope she does it again if they ask her and Ben.
    If they dont accept it then they can reboot for me.
