The news is coming in fast on Marvel and Netflix’s four upcoming TV series. The Wrap is reporting that Drew Goddard is in negotiations to write Daredevil for Marvel. Now, Deadline is reporting that Melissa Rosenberg will write Jessica Jones.
The Wrap notes that Goddard’s a big Daredevil fan, having told Collider a few months back, “You’re talking to a guy who had quotes from Daredevil painted on his wall while growing up. 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 has a lot of TV history with both Joss Whedon as well.
Deadline says Rosenberg whose writen for the first four seasons of Dexter and all five Twilight movies will both produce and write Jessica Jones. The project is being redeveloped at Netflix, which makes sense, given Rosenberg’s previous script was written with ABC in mind.
