Please, please, PLEASE let this project be an adaptation of the manga/TV
show and not the live-action Japanese movie. DEATH NOTE is
one of the most incredible stories to come out of Japan. Literally
presenting the situation of the "pen being mightier than the
sword", Death Note is a masterpiece of crime and political
intrigue. The story follows a young man Light who finds a
mysterious notebook. Whenever he writes a name on its pages, that
person dies soon after. Even my wife couldn't pull away from this
series, and she's no geek by a long shot.
Shane Black is the writer of LETHAL WEAPON, along with
a myriad of other strong Action movies. He's also reportedly a huge
fan of the series as well. The script will be penned by Anthony
Bagarozzi. No matter how good or bad this film will
be, I highly recommend ...
