maxresdefault

Some interesting news have just transpired involving the Hollywood remake of Japanese film Death Note. The long-developed film, based on the manga and anime, which resulted in two live action films and a spin-off, will look to be housed at Netflix exclusively.

Netflix will be financing the film, which looks to be budgeted around the $40-50 million dollar mark. Not only that, two cast members have been officially announced in the wake of the news. Nat Wolff (The Naked Brothers Band, Paper Towns) will play the role originated in the Japanese films by Tatsuya Fujiwara. Wolff’s character comes upon a book that allows him to kill any wrongdoers by simply writing their name in the book. Margaret Qualley (Palo AltoThe Nice Guys) has been cast in the lead female role. The role of Wolff’s rival, a mysterious detective, has yet to be cast.

Adam Wingard will be directing the film from a script by Jeremy SlaterDan LinRoy LeeJason Hoffs, and Masi Oka are producing the film. Most likely, we will see this version of Death Note in 2017 on Netflix.
