Will a Twilight Star Headline David Slade's New Daredevil Movie?
06.03.11 by BJSprecher
Last Saturday, director David Slade (Twilight Saga: Eclipse) used his personal twitter account to promise that we can expect some "official news" this week about his next project Sony Pictures' new Daredevil movie. Well, the week is nearly over and we're still awaiting that official news, but Slade may have given us a huge hint about what that news might be by squeezing a photo of a Twilight star between his rants about 3-D — "No I am not a fan of 3d and I need to write an essay as to why" — and his idea for a new body part-related acronym for Twilight fans — "BREASTS" for "Better Respect Edward and Swan Twilight Saga."
Twilight fans will recognize the man to the right as Xavier Samuel, who Slade cast to play Bella-hunter Riley in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. While not an "official" announcement of any kind, it seems kind of suspect that Slade would promise Daredevil news and then upload this photo of Samuel looking very much like Matt Murdock. Heck, Samuel's already got a hint of red in his hair and he's even wearing dark sunglasses indoors, just like Murdock would since, you know, he's blind and all. If this does turn out to be true, remember that you heard it first here at Reelz!
