The writer and producer of Lost and Alias might have another project on his hands.
According to TheWrap, Drew Goddard is in negotiations for writing the upcoming series called Daredevil.
Netflix and Walt Disney Co. are teaming up for the story based on Marvel characters Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist. The series will be about the blind superhero, Matt Murdock, who was portrayed by Ben Affleck in the movie directed by Mark Steven Johnson.
Drew Goddard’s interest in the character is well known: “You’re talking to a guy who had quotes from Daredevil painted on his wall while growing up,” said Goddard. “Even when I was 18, I still had the blood red door with the, ‘I have shown him that a man without hope is a man without fear.’ That was what I loved and so it’s the sort of thing that if we can find the right project, I would love to do it.”
Goddard is working now on the sci-fi movie, The Martian, for 20th Century Fox. The Daredevil series produced by Marvel Television and ABC Television Studios will launch next year.
