David Slade Sets DAREDEVIL Record Straight

Slow your roll, Internet. Apparently rumors about the nature of the new Daredevil film have been… well, less than accurate. I know, right? Shocking. Director-to-be David Slade says:

Forgot to look at the internet for a few weeks and it’s a litany of false (and no so far off) rumours. So without breaking confidentiality, yes Daredevil, we have a great outline for a very strong character driven take on Mr. Matt Murdock. It will bare no relation to the previous Daredevil movie in any way. We are at early planning stages and have not yet discussed any cast.

So. Not a sequel. No Ben Affleck. I’m assuming no Bradley Cooper. But possibly still adapted from the Miller/Mazzucchelli storyline Born Again?
