David Slade will direct the next Daredevil project for 20th Century FoxDavid Slade has signed onto direct a Daredevil Reboot for 20th Century Fox.

We reported back in February 2010 that Fox was moving forward with a reboot of the 2003 Daredevil movie, which starred Ben Affleck. David Scarpa, who wrote Fox's remake The Day the Earth Stood Still, was hired at that time to write the script. It isn't known if he is still involved with the project.

This latest report indicates that this new Daredevil Reboot incarnation will not feature material from the first movie, so it seems this could be a new origin story for Daredevil.

There was also speculation back in 2009 that Katee Sackhoff was trying out to play Typhoid Mary, a former lover of Matt Murdock/Daredevil, who later became his enemy. The actress was spotted buying up every Daredevil comic she could find that featured the character, although we have heard nothing about Katee Sackhoff's involvement since then.

There is no indication of where the story will take us in this new Daredevil Reboot movie yet.

Daredevil is in development .
