Shooting on Adam Wingard's Death Note film is meant to begin in the Spring. However, Nat Wolff has just been booked to appear in theatrical performances of Buried Child, running off-Broadway from February 17th through to March 13th 2016 (with previews for critics starting on Feb. 2nd).
Wolff will be playing Vince, whose arrival at his grandparent's farm throws everything into chaos. He's left trying to explain to girlfriend Shelley why nobody seems to recognize him, amongst a family where sanity is held by a thread and dark secrets seek to arise. A task made all the more heart-breaking and confusing, as he doesn't understand the reasons why himself.
Playwright Sam Shepherd won a Pulitzer Prize for penning Buried Child. It will be staged at the Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre, in NYC's Pershing Square Signature Center. With soon-to-be Kira actor Nat Wolff taking his place in The New Group theatrical company, under the direction of Scott Elliott.
This is in addition to other recently announced parts for Nat Wolff in 2016. He'll be starring as Jim Nolan in James Franco's movie In Dubious Battle, and also as Doug, a creepy loner who snatches and imprisons a woman expecting her conform to his will, in Jessica Manafort's film Rosy.
While strongly expected to squeeze in global domination, the God of this New World arisen as Light Yagami in the American Death Note movie. By the look of it, Nat Wolff is halfway there before his shinigami even dropped a notebook. At least in terms of utter ubiquity!
Soon we'll be able to work out when Death Note filming in the USA will occur, just by looking for the gaps in Nat Wolff's diary.
