LUTHER Director Farren Blackburn Confirms That He Will Helm DAREDEVIL Episode

Farren Blackburn has helmed a number of TV episodes for the BBC, including well-known shows like Doctor Who, Luther and The Fades. Well, the director has now taken to Twitter to reveal that his next project will be an episode of Daredevil for Marvel and Netflix.


With Drew Goddard busy with the movie pretty much nobody wants to see (that's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 spin-off Sinister Six in case you missed the news), Marvel hired Steven S. DeKnight as Daredevil's new showrunner and are obviously on the hunt for anyway for directors to tackle various instalments of the 13-episode Netflix series. While we don't know which episode it will be, British director Farren Blackburn has confirmed that he will be working on at least one episode of the drama which stars Charlie Cox, Vincent D'Onofrio and Rosario Dawson. 

For those of you wondering, Blackburn directed the Doctor Who episodes, "The Rings of Akhaten" and "The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe". His Luther contribution were the very impressive final two episodes of season three, and that his work on the Idris Elba led drama alone should serve as proof that he will have no problems adapting to the gritty world of Matt Murdock's Hell's Kitchen.
