American Death Note

June 3rd, 2008 by James

TokyoGraph reports that an American remake of Death Note is in the works:

American movie studio Vertigo Entertainment is apparently working on a remake of the popular franchise “Death Note,” which has been turned into three live-action films in Japan. The news was quietly revealed in production notes for the horror films “Shutter” and “The Strangers.”

According to IMDB, Vertigo Entertainment has acted as a production company for remakes such as The Grudge, Dark Water, The Departed, and The Eye.

apparently, zac efron is rumored to be playing light...

I'd like to know where these rumors of Zac playing Light came from. I know a few fans picked up on a similiarity in the way they look, but I haven't heard anything even close to saying that he would actually play Light in a movie.

Since this is going to be an American production, minorities are going to have to be incorporated into the film. I can't help but wonder who's going to be black? Maybe a Chris Tucker or a Don Cheadle on the investigation team?

And assuming they even keep the original characters, it'll be interesting seeing Light as a white boy. As for L, he's already a white boy, so at least they'll get something right.

I think I might half-way enjoy this. If I can sit through the Japanese live-action films, with their horrible acting and cheap effects, I'll be able to tolerate this movie no problem.

The Departed was an awesome movie, so I have a tiny bit of hope that this won't be epic fail.

Atleast it would probably have a much better casting for some of the Death Note characters. (they did not have a very good misa or near) I really hope they an L as good as the guy in the Japanese version..... (I hope it has the L victory ending)
