The Kidd here...
20th Century Fox is still moving ahead with their plans for a DAREDEVIL reboot (it's been nine years since Affleck's version, which seems like enough elapsed time for the rotten taste to have diminished). David Slade is still attached to direct, but the studio is handing the script over to David James Kelly to take a crack at a rewrite in the hopes that the project will round into better shape. Deadline reports that the "Born Again" story arc is what the revival of DAREDEVIL would be centered around, which would have The Kingpin finding out Daredevil's true identity and using that information to go after Matt Murdoch, which sounds like no origin story to me, so hurray for that.
As for who David James Kelly is, well, he's relatively unknown. Take a gander at his IMDb page, and it'll inform you that he was a post-production assistant on SUNSHINE CLEANING back in 2008... and that's about it. However, just because he doesn't have anything we've seen yet to his credit doesn't mean he's not capable of penning a solid comic book script. Many times it takes someone without a name, without the baggage of some other franchise, to bring a fresh perspective to a property that desperately needs it. How often do we hear the same tired names getting their hands on movies that we right away assume they'll ruin as a result of their track record of ruining movies we once had hopes for? Let's give Kelly some breathing room, and see what he comes up with for the time being. If it turns out worlds better than Mark Steven Johnson's film, then we've got a DAREDEVIL worth watching.
Besides, after X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, there's enough reason for optimism that Fox can turn around some of their less-than-stellar superhero franchise (**cough cough** FANTASTIC FOUR).
