Yesterday, we reported the sad news that Joe Carnahan‘s pitch for the reboot of Daredevil failed to gain any traction at Fox. As if to make us even more disappointed, Carnahan took the sizzle reel he made to convince Fox execs and posted it online so we could get a better idea of how cool his take would have been. We’re not seeing any period-piece superhero movies, and Daredevil would have fit in nicely with the 1970s.
As we’ve seen from his tweets and posting of the sizzle reel, Carnahan has no problem keeping people updated about what he’s working on. With that in mind, he called in to The Radio Dan Show to talk about why he was interested in Daredevil, and why the project didn’t get off the ground (the rights will likely now revert to Marvel Studios). He also talks about his upcoming remake of Death Wish, when it will take place, its similarity to the original, and more. Hit the jump for what Carnahan had to say about these projects.
