Hollywood Version of "Death Note" Gets A New Director

Followers of Japanese manga and anime will no doubt be aware that “Death Note” has been a highly successful franchise. 

The story has been made into a series of movies that were big hits here in Japan as well as a musical that was performed at the Nissei Theater in Tokyo this month, and there’s also a TV drama scheduled for broadcast in July this year.

But that’s not all. We still have the Hollywood live action film of “Death Note” to look forward to, and the recent news is that the movie now has a new director! 

Fans of the “Death Note” series should be glad to hear that the long-awaited Hollywood film version will now be directed by Adam Wingard, known as the director of scream-worthy cult horror flicks such as “The Guest” and “You’re Next.”  

The Hollywood Reporter has broken the news that Wingard is onboard Death Note’s US feature film, with Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Jason Hoffs and Masi Oka producing.

But, we still may have to wait a little while longer for the finished movie, as Wingard will apparently be directing another film, “The Woods”, before starting work on “Death Note.”

“Death Note” has been kicking around in Hollywood for a while, with the prospective director changing several times during that period from Shane Black (Iron Man 3) to Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting) and now to Wingard, so hopefully the announcement means the project is making progress.

Just one request as this project moves forward: Could we possibly cast Asian actors in the starring roles?
