The hollywood money machine is at it again! How will the studio executives ruin this?

although with the topic of death note, it may be a hard sell.... Movie studios and backers may hesitate to give away money they may not get a return on (Dragon ball anyone?).

How will we americanize things that are totally japanese? how will the common, non-anime movie fan take (or accept) this premise?

just think about this... How would a shinigami be portrayed when there is no true north american equivalent?

L.... how do we begin? L cant be anything other than japanese! can you imagine a caucasian L? blonde quirky white guy with mascara? Sacrilege!

its possible that some would find it absurd that Light's father would be a police chief... too convenient! The police or FBI's Internal affairs would have dissmissed him or passed the case to someone else.

The character of Light would have to be portrayed very carefully. We (heaven forbid) [heh] would not want another loner on a killing rampage to inspire the impressionable youths that you are.

like i said lets just hope that this doesnt become another dragon ball, otherwise this movie may be in the $5.00 bargain bin in a few years.
