David Slade (30 Days of Night) has been hired by 20th Century Fox to direct a new Daredevil film.

Daredevil, based on the Marvel character of the same name, was released in 2003 to mixed reviews, and starred Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, Colin Farrell and Jon Favreau.

The as-yet-untitled Daredevil film was written by David Scarpa and, according to Variety, will continue the story of the first, rather than rebooting it.

Slade had been in talks to direct 20th Century Fox’s Wolverine reboot, but lost out to Darren Aronofsky.
