Daredevil remake in the works… For all the wrong reasons

It looks like Fox, in an effort to not lose the Daredevil property to Disney, is looking to make another Daredevil movie.  The deal between Marvel and Disney continued any previous rights granted to movie makers as long as it was not an abandoned property (or a property no longer in production).  In other words, it looks like Fox is just trying to keep a hold of the rights.

Reinforcing this point is the fact that they’ve hired David Scarpa to write the script.  “Who?” you ask?  Well look him up on IMDB!  He wrote the screenplay for the 2008 movie “The Day the Earth Stood Still”!!  He also wrote “The Last Castle”!  Aaaand that’s all, at least according to IMDB.  Now I don’t want to be the one to say “oh, this guy is a sh*tty writer”.  Please don’t think that’s what I’m saying.  For all I know this guy might be the “next big thing”.  What I’m saying is that Fox went to what looks to be the least expensive guy they could so the movie could be considered “in production” and they could keep their rights without spending too much money.  I’m betting this movie never gets made, at least not in this current incarnation.  There’s no director attached, no actors, no nothing.  Way to go, Fox.
