Drew Goddard — the creator of "Daredevil" and director of "The Cabin in the Woods" — has signed a major multi-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox TV.

Deadline reports the pact is worth $50 million to $70 million. Goddard will write, create, direct and develop new television projects for the studio for all platforms.

It is the studio's first deal with creative talent since the finalization of Disney's $71.3 billion acquisition of 21st Century Fox, including 20th Fox TV.

Goddard began his career as a writer on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Angel," "Alias," and "Lost." He penned the feature film scripts for 2008's "Cloverfield," 2013's "World War Z," and 2015's "The Martian," for which he received an Oscar nomination.

He also created the Marvel/Netflix series "Daredevil" and produced the superhero team-up "The Defenders."

He most recently wrote, directed, and produced the mystery thriller "Bad Times at the El Royale."
