Oh hey, remember "Daredevil"? That's okay, you might've forgotten with all the hubbub about "The Wolverine" over the past few days.

Rodriguez spoke highly of the script (by "Zombieland" scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick), and it looked likely to be the director's next film after he completed the currently-filming "Spy Kids 4."
