Netflix On The Verge Of Snapping Up New Live-Action Death Note Movie

The new US-made, live-action Death Note movie which was being developed at Warner Bros is on the verge of moving to Netflix, according the sources for The Hollywood Reporter.

Death Note Wolff Margaret Qualley

The manga adaptation (which follows both anime and live-action adaptation in its native Japan) is being directed by Adam Wingard (The Guest, You’re Next) and will star  Nat Wolff (The Fault In Our Star) and Margaret Qualley (The Leftovers). Several studios were interested in taking over the project from Warners, but Netflix is likely to close the deal reckons THR.

The story, which has been moved to America (of course) is about a student called Light (Wolff) who discovers a supernatural notebook that allows him to kill anyone simply by writing the victim’s name in its pages. Initially he decides to use it for good – riding the world of people he deems as evil – but, well… you must have heard the phrase, “power corrupts”. The film then becomes a cat and mouse game between Light and the detective assigned to track him down.
