Death Note is a 2017 American neo-noir supernatural horror-thriller film loosely adapted from the Japanese manga of the same name created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata about a high school student named Light Yagami who stumbles across a mysterious otherworldly notebook: the “Death Note”, which belonged to the “Shinigami” Ryuk, and grants its user the power to kill anyone whose name and face he knows. The original Death Note‘s twelve volumes manga had over 30 million copies in circulation with the series winning the 2008 Eagle Award for Favourite Manga as voted by UK fans and the Ministry of Culture of Japan place it 10th amongst the best manga of all time. It has also received several nominations such as Best Manga at the 2006 American Anime Awards, the 2007 Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize, and Obata was nominated for Best Penciller/Inker at the 2008 Eisner Award. The 2006 anime totaling 37 episodes was developed by Madhouse and directed Tetsuro Araki has one of the biggest worldwide fanbases and has been aired on Adult Swim multiple times since 2007.
No word if Death Note director Adam Wingard will return for the sequel and there aren’t any details on casting and story for it either but with reviews like “It’s an almost inherently engrossing premise that’s employed to progressively hit-and-miss effect by director Adam Wingard.” there’s no doubt we have another sizable success in the works.
