Warner Brothers Sign Off On Death Note Live-Action Movie Rights


Just out, Warner Brothers has acquired the rights to adapt Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata of the supernatural suspense manga series, Death Note into a live-action film! Last year Vertigo Entertainment announced the American remake with screenwriters Vlas and Charles Parlapanides.  They are still on board with the project with Warner Brothers, so no need to worry there. Vertigo Entertainment is responsible to such remakes like (The Grudge), (The Eye), (The Departed) and a bunch of other movies starting with the word “The”.

I still cannot wait for the news on who will be playing L! Please God let it be Johnny Depp and please when the Warner Brothers adaptation comes out, please let there be more than 10 people in the theater! That is sadly how it was when I went to see L, Change The World in the theatre this past Wednesday. Pretty damn good movie, I might add especially if you like movies like ( 28 days Later)!

    I am hoping they don’t sugar coat the movie and try to please tweens. I want the grittiness and the intelligence that the anime had. In other words, a movie rated R and not PG!

    @Daniel Perez
    Or Not rated at all like the previous Death Note Japanese films, I like how we saw burning carcus!

    I was not a big fan of the grudge or the eye remake. I feel when it comes to horror Hollywood doesn’t want to push limits unless it’s someone like Rob Zombie at the helm. I’m more concerned with the script/story of the movie than the actors involved because you never know who might surprise you. Imagine if Sam Jackson played L.

    That’s exacty the picture I saw when I said that. I think he would be funny as hell as L, but it wouldn’t be L. But imagine that dialogue that would come out of that man’s mouth in that movie.

    Johnny Depp is to old to play L

  7. […] all you Zac Efron haters let out a sigh of relief it seems like the Death Note Remake is kinda, sorta still in the making but a while from now and not Zac’s “main” […]

  8. Me says:

    I agree with Ninja, Johnny is waaay too old to play a 25 y/o character like L
