Death Note Live Action News

Post by Sensei Zogstar (Admin) on Tue Oct 04, 2016 1:03 pm

Netflix announced on Friday that its live-action Death Note film will premiere streaming in 2017. Netflix also unveiled some additional cast members, as well as the character names for previously announced cast members.

Vertigo Entertainment's Roy Lee (Dark Water, The Lake House, Shutter), Lin Pictures' Dan Lin (This Side of the Truth, Sherlock Holmes, The Lego Movie), Viz Productions' Jason Hoffs (Edge of Tomorrow), and actor Masi Oka (Heroes, Hawaii Five-0) are producers. Doug Davison (Dark Water, The Grudge, The Lake House) and Brian Witten (Dark City, American History X, Final Destination) are executive producers, and Niija Kuykendall and Nik Mavinkurve had been overseeing the project for Warner.

In Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata's original 2003-2006 supernatural suspense manga, teenager Light Yagami finds a notebook with which he can put people to death by writing their names. He begins a self-anointed crusade against the criminals of the world, and a cat-and-mouse game begins with the authorities and one idiosyncratic genius detective.

In addition to the 2006 television anime adaptation and tie-in specials, Death Note also received a Japanese live-action film adaptation in 2006, with a sequel titled Death Note: The Last Name, and a spinoff titled L change the WorLd in 2008. A live-action television series adaptation premiered last July, and ended last September. A new film titled Death Note 2016, described as a "forbidden sequel" to the first live-action film, is set to open in Japan on October 29. The manga also inspired a stage musical by Broadway veterans in 2014. Viz released the manga, Japanese live-action films, anime, and other tie-in projects in North America, and Crunchyroll streamed the live-action television series.

I've never seen a live action, and honestly I'm not really interested, but I might check it out just to have an open mind. Who knows, I may end up liking it! (Doubt it, but still worth a shot)

The real question is whether or not you can still call the live-action adaptation of an anime show "anime"? Shocked Shocked Shocked

Nope. It is then a live-action adaptation. Neutral
