Director David Slade stuck to the world of vampires for his previous two movies — 2007's 30 Days of Night and 2010' The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. For his next two movies, though, Slade is taking on comic books and graphic novels.
Already attached to direct the reboot of Daredevil, Slade will also direct Coward, the Eisner Award–winning first volume of comic book writer and screenwriter Ed Brubaker's Criminal series, published by Marvel Comics' Icon imprint in 2007. Coward centers around master heist planner Leo, who goes against his own rules when a woman from his past arrives with information on a sure-fire score. Brubaker is scripting the adaptation, as confirmed by Slade on his personal Twitter account.
