Comic fans went nuts earlier this year when director Joe Carnahan (The Grey, Narc) revealed he was in the running to direct a gritty, 1970s-set reboot of Daredevil—and his epic sizzle reel only fanned the flames. But now it seems Carnahan has moved on to another dark comic he wants to bring to the big screen.
Joe Carnahan's sizzle reel for his aborted Daredevil movie proved so popular the director has released another video pitch for a defunct project. This time, it's Clint Eastwood vs. Clint Eastwood (seriously) in the sci-fi thriller Gemini Man.
The chances of seeing a Daredevil reboot from Twentieth Century Fox seem to keep getting slimmer. First, director David Slade backed off the project to work on TV, and now another big-name director is lamenting that his plans for The Man Without Fear might be dead.
In recent weeks, we've been teased with the potential for a gritty, exploitation-esque take on Daredevil, courtesy of Joe Carnahan (The Grey, Narc). Sadly, the movie's a bust, but Carnahan was nice enough to show fans what could've been, thanks to the sizzle reels worked up for the studio. Want to see what he had in mind?
