It isn't a massive amount that US Death Note director Adam Wingard has to say that's of particular interest to us.
Nevertheless Collider's Perri Nemiroff asked about future projects, in an interview that was otherwise about Wingard's pilot TV show Outcast.
Wingard answered, "I'm doing an adaptation of Death Note. I'm in the process of doing that."
That's all! Though it's nice to have random confirmation that everything is still happening.
The comment occurs around the 9.48 minute mark in the above embedded interview from ‘Outcast’: Adam Wingard on the Differences between Directing a Pilot & Feature Film, posted yesterday - March 17th 2016 - on Collider.
