Netflix To Produce Live Action Death Note Movie

It’s been a tough month for Warner Bros as 69% drop in box office earnings of Batman vs. Superman, which led them to reschedule and cancel planned projects and Death Note being one of them got canceled as well.

But we need not to worry as it’s been reported by the Hollywood Reporter that Netflix will pick up the rights for producing a Netflix Death Note live action movie.

The director is still going to be Adam Wingard’s and below is a short story line!

The story, set in a major metropolitan American city, centers on a student who, after discovering a supernatural notebook that allows him to kill anyone by writing the victim’s name, decides to cleanse the world of whom he deems evil. As the student is tracked by a reclusive police officer, a cat-and-mouse game ensues

Just to tell you guys that this has nothing to do with the Death Note live-action movie being produced in Japan. It’s going to be Death Note’s 10th anniversary so maybe this is why it’s getting so much love.
