Fox Using Frank Miller's Born Again For Daredevil Reboot

HeatVision has updated their previous story that David Slade has been brought on to direct/adapt the Daredevil reboot. 20th Century Fox will be using the Frank Miller written Born Again saga for the film. Similar to the use of Miller's Wolverine Japanese saga which is being used for Darren Aronofsky's The Wolverine. It's a great starting point as Miller was one of the best Daredevil writers and his source material could help bring a successful reboot and potential franchise.

The original film was a total mess from the terrible acting, directing, costumes and script it never had a chance. Hopefully Fox has learned their lessons and are willing to put more time/creativity into these reboots. Hiring Slade and using source material from Frank Miller are two reasons this new film could work. Born Again featured the Kingpin discovering Daredevil's identity and slowly destroying his life.
