The American film studio Warner Brothers has acquired the rights to adapt Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata‘s Death Note supernatural suspense manga series into a live-action film. In the manga, a teenager 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 the proposed film version, the main character is described as a college student, and the story will cover the first three of the 13 manga volumes.
The only question now is whether Warner Brothers can make a better live-action Death Note movie compared to the 3 Japanese version Death Note live-action movies.
Or better yet, can they make a movie based on an anime better than what 20th Century Fox did with the Dragonball Evolution movie? ~_^
If not, here’s hoping we can put the names of the Warner Brothers Executives who thought this was a good idea on a “real” Death Note. ^,..,^
