Death Note American Version Out Soon! Guess Who Is Casted As Light!

l

For all you anime fans out there, there’s a little manga that became an anime, which has now evolved into a 3-part live action film. If you’re hard-core, you probably already know what I’m talking about. You guessed it right, Death Note. For those that do not know, the story revolved on Light, a college student who finds a notebook lying on the ground coined “Death Note”. He “reluctantly” picks it up and that is when havoc ensues…

He basically can write anyone’s name down in the book with his or her face in mind and kill him or her off with the jot of a pen. Later on it becomes a whole moral issue on who he kills, why and a very entertaining cat and mouse game. Think of CSI and Law & Order multiplied by a thousand. It is one of the most exciting intellectual dramas I have encountered and I implore you to check it out!

Now for the news .. the American version of this film is set to come out  through Vertigo very soon and they have already have an actor for the role of Light Yagami. That actor being  Zack Efron, the kid from the High School musical movies! Ok , perhaps he can play the pretty boy end of it but I do not see him playing the evil , power hungry Light Yagami later seen as the anime and film progresses. I do not care who plays Light as long as Johnny Depp plays L !  Can you  possibly think of a better actor playing the weird , eccentric and adorable L ? I didn’t think so! Below is Zack Efron for those who did not know what he looks like and too lazy to.

  1. this is just my personal opion but i think david tennent would make a good L as for zac effron being light it might work. it depends weather warner brothers put real efort into this or its just another horrible live action Flop. *cough* the last airbender *cough*

  2. thank you for killing the single most amazing anime in the world you bastards

  3. GEE THANKS ALOT. WTF. WHY? AND HIS NAME IS CHANGED TO LIGHT REYNOLDS AND MISA’S IS MISA PARKER? WHAT THE HELL IS THEIR PROBLEM -.- THANK YOU, THAT YOU SO MUCH. FOR DESTROYING THE AWESOMENESS!! OF DEATH NOTE. WHATS NEXT L IS GONNA BE CHANGED INTO Z? 😐 If i had a death note on me right now I would kill the retards who came up with this crappy ‘IDEA’.

  4. Oh thank God. I just let out a sigh of relif.@Sav

  5. @icee
    Can you share where you found this information?

  6. this is a insult!!! this movie will ruin death note!!!

  7. If JD plays the role of L, I think I might die. *drool*

  8. Thank you for ruining one of the best manga series out there you bastards

  9. Pick someone else to be Light and keep it in Japan! Please!!!!!!!!!!’

  10. nah, if anyone is going to play L i feel more of a Colin Morgan feel is needed, obviously after he shaves though 🙂
    think more of a cynical quiet Merlin without the magic and your star

  11. Why don’t they just make the death note another note into a movie rather than remaking it that would be better..and I love Johnny Depp he’s too old for the role..Kenichi Matsuyama is still the perfect L for me

  12. What??? They are going to changed the story and the name? That would be a BAD idea!!! Johnny Depp would fit as L but he’s too old for the role. The real movie in japan who play L would be the best i think- Kenichi Matsuyama.

  13. Hola busco casting mi passion!!! Es la actuacion y El modelaje GENESIS OSUNA

  14. The character’s name is Light YAGAMI, its clearly a japanese/asian name! So they better hire an ASIAN AMERICAN actor! and not some white guy! Are most people too fucking stupid or racist against Asian Americans actors to figure that out???
