David James Kelly to Rewrite 'Daredevil' Reboot, David Koepp Up for 'Snow White' Sequel
While Kelly has been tapped to rewrite the 20th Century Fox's long-gestating Marvel superhero movie, Koepp is in talks to pen the script for Universal Pictures' 'Snow White and the Huntsman' sequel.


Two upcoming big movies are fast-tracking their productions by hiring screenwriters to pen each of their script. The first film is the untitled Daredevil project, which was recently deemed to be dead by its director David Slade.

Deadline reported that 20th Century Fox has tapped David James Kelly to rewrite the "Daredevil" reboot. Words are, the plot is based on Frank Miller/David Mazzucchelli's acclaimed "Born Again", where The Kingpin uncovers Daredevil's secret identity, and uses it to turn blind lawyer Matt Murdoch's life upside down.

Slade, who helmed "The Twilight Saga's Eclipse", was chosen by Fox to helm the planned "Daredevil" project back in early 2011. However, he recently admitted to be pessimistic over the progress of the Marvel superhero movie.

The director tweeted, "Daredevil update is that there is no real Daredevil update. We all want to make it but its going slow, & details are too boring to print." He added, "I am focusing on Hannibal hoping after that to be able to get a burst of energy back on DD."

The second movie which has just found its screenwriter is a sequel to "Snow White and the Huntsman". While the first movie has yet to open wide in the U.S., Universal Pictures is already in negotiations with "Men in Black 3" scribe David Koepp to write the script for the follow-up film.

According to Deadline, Universal is moving forward with the "Snow White" sequel so that director Rupert Sanders can make it his next project right after the first movie. The studio will release the first film on June 1. Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth star as the titular princess and huntsman, while Charlize Theron portrays the Evil Queen Ravenna.
