Maybe they'll get it right this time.

In order to keep the movie rights to Marvel Comics’ “Daredevil” under their belt, 20th Century Fox and New Regency are looking to develop a reboot of the sightless superhero with News Corp VP Peter Chernin producing and David Scarpa (The Day the Earth Stood Still) writing a script, according to Mike Fleming at Deadline Hollywood.

The original movie directed by Mark Steven Johnson and starring Ben Affleck in the title role (and his current wife Jennifer Garner as Elektra) was released almost exactly seven years ago and grossed $179.2 million worldwide.

With high hopes for the first movie ultimately leading me to disappointment, I’m hoping they can get it right with the reboot. As a former writer of the comic itself, I’d love to see Kevin Smith in the director’s chair to do it some justice.
