I was appalled upon first hearing that Hollywood has decided to do a remake of our Beloved Death note movie! At first, I thought it was just a rumor, but I googled it & it's true!! I don't understand why, since there's already two live action movies in Japan & a third on the way! I HATE how Americans have to STEAL ideas from Japanese movies and then try to make them better, as if they have something to prove? Besides the fact that it's stupid to have an English remake, casting Zac as light would be an insult to true Death Note fans!

I found a petition against casting Zac Efron (High School Musical, teeny bopper idol, fag) as Yagami Light! If you're like me & think that seeing him play Light would make you naseous, sign this!! Post the link on your profile page & spread the word as much as possible! WE CANNOT BE IGNORED!!

Petition to cast Kenichi Matsuyama (original actor) as L: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/lindeathnote/index.html

Think about how people will take their kids, thinking it's a Disney movie, and their kids will be traumatized from seeing Zac kill people(lol) Not to mention it might get a bunch of lame 12 year old Efron fans into Death Note & make it so overrated that the real fans get sick of it & stop liking it D: UGGHH NAY I SAY!

Spread the word~!!

if they DO remake the movie and Zac Efron is the lead actor (meaning he'll play the role of Light) well, excuse me...I won't patronize their work...

BURN THEM TO HELL!!!

c'mon...like what you said here, Angellusaurum, imagine all those young kids who are fans of Zac watching the movie...they'll be traumatized when they'll see their idol killing mercilessly the people (even though at first all of them were criminals but killing is still a sin) and might eventually hate the show itself.

The image of Death Note was well accepted by us, who are the patrons of the original work that was created and broadcasted/released by Japan...there is no need to remake it...the original was well enough to cater to everyone's liking if they were interested in the show in the first place...

and if Disney's the one releasing it (or remaking it), don't you think that their digging up their own grave in taking the risk of doing such movie? Disney's patrons are generally kids...and if they're the ones remaking Death Note...well...I don't want to imagine what'll happen next...

you decide people...

(Oh yeah...I'd like to add something else...I always have a liking to asian [horror] movies - I'm taking this as an example - but there are movies that were remade by americans and turned them into their own version...the result was...kinda lousy...so imagine if they're really going to remake Death Note and americanize it...I'm not so sure with how it will turn out...perhaps it'll share the same fate with some of those remakes...)
