Robert Pattinson Up for 'Daredevil'?

Director David Slade's pitch is said to be a 'close cousin' to other superhero reboots such as 'Batman Begins'.
Robert Pattinson is Daredevil?
Robert Pattinson is Daredevil?
After the news surfaced that David Slade is directing the Untitled Daredevil Reboot, talk has now turned to who will star as Matt Murdock. There is speculation that Robert Pattinson may be in talks for the lead role.

David Slade directed Robert Pattinson in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse last year, and it seems there is "some kind of talk" about Robert Pattinson reuniting with the director for Daredevil. Robert Pattinson is currently shooting his last movie as the vampire Edward Cullen, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2.

The Untitled Daredevil Reboot is said to be a "close cousin" to other superhero reboots. Here's what an inside source recently had to say about David Slade's pitch for the reboot.

"It's a bit (like) Batman Begins. The bad guy will learn who Daredevil really is and tries to destroy him - but not via the usual methods."


Of course, none of this has been confirmed by the studio as of yet. The Untitled Daredevil Reboot will certainly be a hot commodity and we'll have to wait and see what actors start to circle the project.

Daredevil is in development .

    If it's a sequels as a few users are saying, then why not bring back Ben and have him direct it? He proved he's a great director (The Town). He deserves a second chance at the character

    I figured they would go for a younger guy but I just don't see this young guy being as good a DD as Ben was.

    ROFL!! I guess Robert Pattinson needs the paycheck...?!!??!!!

    ...and why would anyone want to remake a film from 2003 already written and directed by Mark Steven Johnson!?!? Hollywood is losing their marbles!

    Also in 2005, an R-rated director's cut of the film was released, incorporating approximately thirty minutes back into the film, including an entire sub-plot involving a character played by Coolio.

    Rumors....and bad ones at that. I doubt he will be daredevil. That is among the most rediculous news i've heard in months.

    He's not that bad an actor but I agree that Robert shouldn't be in this at all. I would rather see Chris Pine in this film.

    @shuabert Slade himself bever said it was a close cousin to other reboots. Slade only said it was similar to Batman Begins in that someone know the main characters identity and seeks to destroy him.

    I'm not rolling on the floor laughing and my ass is still intact... I'm not against the idea, but @insertusernamehere raised an excellent point. Guy Pearce, Mr. Slade.

    @jptheredskull Then why does he call it a "close cousin" to other reboots, and compare it to Batman Begins?
