20th Century Fox has hired Fringe writer/producer Brad Caleb Kane to pen its Daredevil reboot. Per Heat Vision, the studio wants Kane to adapt Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s classic 1986 arc (spanning issues #227-233) “Born Again” for director David Slade (30 Days of Night). In that run, Daredevil’s nemesis the Kingpin discovers his secret identity by virtue of Matt Murdock’s former secretary, Karen Page, in exchange for a shot of heroin. In addition to working on Fringe, Kane has also contributed a draft of Columbia’s vampire novel adaptation The Historian and a script for a Richard Pryor biopic which has Bill Condon attached to direct.

The report mentions that Kane’s “energy and passion for the material” helped the scribe land the gig. He’ll most likely need every ounce of both in adapting what is considered by many one of the greatest Daredevil arcs of all time. In case you are unfamiliar with the run, you can head over to the Wikipedia page to check out the full plot details or (and this is my recommendation) pick up a copy of the run and read it for yourself.
