We've actually got dates for the filming schedule of Adam Wingard's Death Note movie! Plus one or two more details besides.
Last we heard, Warner Bros had put the movie up for grabs and Netflix was in the top running to nab it. There's no firm update on that yet, just that the strong rumours remain one nod short of fact.
What we can say is that production is being overseen by the presumably newly formed (considering the name) company DN (Canada) Productions Inc.
They will set up shop in British Columbia on June 22nd 2016, filming in various locations but mostly in and around Vancouver. Though all dates are subject to change, Death Note's film schedule is currently pencilled in to end on August 30th 2016.
Diving into Death Note - Deadpool's Assistant Director James Bitonti!
Bitonti, of course, is also known for X:Men and Rise of the Planet of the Apes. But Deadpool will be the clincher.
Adam Wingard remains the director, though his real name is actually WILLIAM Adam Wingard, according to the blarb. Producers Masi Oka, Brian Witten and Dan Lin also retain their involvement in the movie; along with executive producers Roy Lee, John Powers Middleton and Adam C. Stone.
Newly brought on-board is executive producer Brendan Ferguson, known for The Butterfly Effect, Sucker Punch and The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus. He will also be acting as unit production manager. He'll be joined in the executive producer role by Doug Davison of How to Train Your Dragon fame.
Drew Locke is stepping in as production manager, Laura Livingstone is PC (anyone know what that stands for?) and Hans Dayal is location manager. He will be assisted in the role by Patrick Subarsky.
Finally, relative newcomer Ryan Halprin will be filling the position of production executive. Whatever that is. He was an assistant to Dan Lin on The Lego Movie, and co-produced the upcoming sequels.
Beyond that, you'll know more when we do.
