Fox taps helmer for superhero feature
David Slade will direct the next film in the "Daredevil" story for 20th Century Fox.
Peter Chernin's Chernin Entertainment will produce.
Sources close to the project tell Variety that the untitled film will be a continuation of the superhero pic, and will not contain material from the Ben Affleck-toplined version released by Fox in 2003.
Slade had been in talks to direct "Wolverine," which eventually landed with Darren Aronofsky.
Slade's previous credits include "The Twilight Saga" and "30 Days of Night."
