Death Note to Become Feature Length Film in U.S.A.
According to Hollywood Reporter and IMDB.com, Director Adam Wingard (V/H/S and The ABCs of Death) has signed on to direct a feature length U.S. film for the popular anime Death Note. For those who have been following, Shane Black was originally slated to direct but it appears Wingard is the final choice at the helm for this supernatural / horror themed anime feature. The U.S. version (adapted from the original Japanese Desu nôto), will be produced by Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Jason Hoffs and Masi Oka. For those new to the series, a boy finds a magical book with the power to cause the death of anyone whose name he decides to write in the pages. He decides to use the mystical powers to eradicate people he deems evil in an effort to save the world.
