Despite the sub-par first attempt by Hollywood to bring Daredevil to the big screen, the Marvel Comics entity is making its return.  Though there’s no word on a writer or any of the stars yet, David Slade is in the works to be the director.  On his resume: one of the Twilight films and 30 Days Of Night.  The word is that Sony is working to develop another Daredevil project for the same reason they’re rebooting Spider-man; if the studio doesn’t put a project into development it loses the right to do so in the future.  (Source: G4TV)

Ivan Reitman is a busy man as of late, with several projects potentially in development.  Want GHOSTBUSTERS III?  Apparently he’s got a script which the other guys involved like, but Bill Murray still needs to read it.  There’s work on bringing BAYWATCH to the big screen, but apparently there isn’t a “makeable” script yet.   Will Howard Stern be making a sequel to PRIVATE PARTS?  He’s been talking to Reitman about it, but Ivan doubts it.  Reitman is looking for an opportunity to work with his son, but he’s looking for “a movie we would co-direct that has a kind of dual story perhaps that can be divided up.” (source: Spinoff)

Bryan Singer is working on a project to retell the story of JACK AND THE BEANSTALK, and the cast is likely to include Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci and Bill Nighy. (source: Heat Vision / Hollywood Reporter)
