Wow! You daren't take your eyes off the latest Death Note news for an instant today. It's all go! Major stories cropping up everywhere!
Right now, it's the turn of the Adam Wingard directed US Death Note movie. Showbiz magazine Variety has just (September 29th 2015) run a story claiming the the long awaited Hollywood adaptation of Death Note is close to casting its Kira.
Californian singer/actor Nat Wolff will play Light Yagami in the USA - as long as 'final negotiations' with the film-makers continue just as planned.
This is going to get confusing fast, as it seems the Death Note US film is due out in 2016. At least production is purportedly starting Stateside during next Spring.
That's in addition to Death Note 2016, which is the Japanese Warner Bros./Nippon TV movie, directed by Shinuke Sato. As the working title suggests, we're expecting that to hit cinemas (or theaters, if you prefer) sometime in 2016.
Yep, you wait years for a Death Note live action film and two turn up at once.
