Looks like the Hollywood adaptation of Death Note is still in play. Speaking with Bleeding Cool, Iron Man 3 director (and Leathal Weapon writer) Shane Black addressed the subject of upcoming projects. "Right now I’ve got this thing at Warner Bros. called Death Note that I like a lot. It’s a Japanese Manga that’s very tense and really cool." 

 

Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata's suspense manga series has previously been adapted into an anime and Japanese live-action movie series.

 

Black is also working on an adaptation of the Doc Savage pulp series.
