Quote:
Fringe writer-producer Brad Caleb Kane has been hired to adapt Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s acclaimed “Born Again” storyline for Fox’s new Daredevil movie, Heat Vision reports.

Kane, who’s said to be a Daredevil fan, confirmed the news on Twitter, writing, “I guess it’s official! ‘Change your life.’ -Murdock.” He later added, “We’ll do our best to do right by him (and the fans!).”

Rumors first emerged in mid-March, only hours after David Slade was announced as director, that the studio would turn to the revered 1986 arc for inspiration. Slade fueled that speculation when he described the outline as “a very strong character-driven take on Mr. Matt Murdock. It will [bear] no relation to the previous Daredevil movie in any way.”

That of course fits “Born Again,” a seven-issue story that’s cast a long shadow over virtually every Daredevil comic that came after it. In it, Daredevil’s drug-addicted girlfriend Karen Page sells Matt Murdock’s secret identity in exchange for a shot of heroin. The information finds its way to the Kingpin, who begins a six-month crusade to destroy his nemesis, dismantling Murdock’s life — he loses his money, his home and his law license — and pushing the Man Without Fear over the edge.

Slade, who’s also developing the new Daredevil, confirmed the basis for the movie in a tweet: “Yes, Brad and I are meeting daily to work on the script, and yes ‘Born Again’ is our main source material with all its grittiness.”



Those of you who haven't seen Fringe should check it out. It's one of my favorite shows. Heck, Buy Fringe on DVD and get caught up before the new season starts on Fox. You'll be glad you did.

Description from wikipedia
Fringe is an American science fiction television series created by J. J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. The series follows a Federal Bureau of Investigation "Fringe Division" team based in Boston, Massachusetts under the supervision of Homeland Security. The team uses unorthodox "fringe" science and FBI investigative techniques to investigate a series of unexplained, often ghastly occurrences, which are related to mysteries surrounding a parallel universe. The show has been described as a hybrid of The X-files, Altered States, The Twilight Zone and Dark Angel.

I think I am the only person on the planet aside from the director that enjoyed that Daredevil movie.

Nope, I did too. I've got it on DVD, and I've watched it at least ten times. I enjoyed the pace and the music. I thought it was a great movie. I've seen it probably more than the first Spider-man, and I love that movie too.

The only movies I've seen more are the Superman movies and Star Wars. Of course I've seen the Last Starfighter a bunch of times too back when I was a kid.

OK. But do you have the director's cut?

No, I've never seen the director's cut. I guess I should see if I can get it on sale some time. Hate to pay full price for a movie I've seen a million times and already own unless there's a whole lot of different scenes missing from the standard version.

The only substantial differences between the theatrical and director's cuts are less of a focus on the romantics and humor and more of what a bleak and dark place Matt inhabits(take that as you will). A number of small and subtle things result in a very darker movie.

I always thought they may have added some more violence to the director's cut. Didn't it make it a R rating?
Posted:  10 Jun 2011 20:40
Not so much added as left in. I had to check but yes, it's an R, and that's probably due to the fight scenes(and a few choice moments with Bullseye).
