I know this should be under the Movie forum, but I want to put it here. For the Death Note fans, How do you feel of a new movie of Death Note coming to America? What are your thoughts? I know the anime has one or two live action films, but this anime is coming to America.

How I feel about it is, I don't think I'll like it if you seen what their choices are on who might play the characters.
Hollywood messed up DBZ and The last Air Bender and more likely that'll happen to Death Note. :/

There was already a live action movie available on YouTube for a while. I remember watching it in Japanese. I'm not sure if the sub version is still on there or not but this looks like the same thing.

So the IMDB one is not official, right? Even if it's not most of those I have a hard time seeing as the characters in Death Note. I am curious to know how well Zac Efron could do playing Light. I think Michael Caine would do a good job as Watari. Jerry Trainor as Matusda might be interesting. I think I could see Gary Oldman as Light's father.

I remember hearing something about the Iron Man 3 director being the one to direct this.


I am actually excited to see this movie if it does come out. It's not that I have high hopes for it, but I'm intrigued. I'm not going to write it off saying it's gonna be like Dragonball Evolution or The Last Airbender, as it's not even out yet.

Well we'll have to wait and see what really happens. The project has been in the works for 6 years now when WB acquired the rights in 2009, and they already had a director on board at one point in 2011.

And from what I've read it looks like that original director (Shane Black) had a lot of creative disputes with WB because they didn't want to be as true to the source material as Shane did. So a change in director really could be a very bad, Dragonball Evolution-esque sign for things to come.

Warner Brothers? That somehow seems to be a bad sign in itself, provided they're who I think they are.

This project has been picked up and dropped so many times that I don't know if it will ever happen.

I like some of their properties, but I don't think death note is a good fit.

Keep Shyamalan away from this. Far, far, far, far, far away. And another far after that for good measure. One more.
