Death Note

Netflix has released a one sheet for Adam Wingard’s upcoming Death Note adaptation. We have the goods for you to check out below, so have a look!

Willem Dafoe, Nat Wolff (Paper Towns), Margaret Qualley (The Nice Guys), Keith Stanfield (Straight Outta Compton), Paul Nakauchi (Alpha and Omega), and Shea Whigham (Agent Carter) star in the adaptation. And Adam Wingard directs.

The film has been plagued by a series of starts and stops. Warner Brothers had the rights to adapt the property for more than five years. When the studio failed to act within that time frame, the rights reverted and Netflix swooped in to acquire them.

The property has already been developed for the big screen in Japan and that adaptation was followed by a sequel.

Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Jason Hoffs and Masi Oka served as producers on the project. Doug Davison and Brian Witten are executive producing. Jeremy Slater penned the most recent draft of the script. Shane Black (The Predator) was attached to direct prior to Adam Wingard coming on board. Death Note will see release on Netflix August 25, 2017.

Plot outline from Netflix: “Based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power; if the owner inscribes someone’s name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with his new godlike abilities, the young man begins to kill those he deems unworthy of life.”
