Warner brings 'Death' to bigscreen

Recommended Posts


Warner Bros. has acquired rights to turn the Japanese manga series "Death Note" into a live-action film.Studio has hired screenwriters Charley and Vlas Parlapanides to adapt.

Story centers on a college student who accidentally finds a misplaced "death note," infusing him with the power to kill merely by writing anyone's name on the page while picturing the person in his mind.

The 13-volume manga is a bestseller in Japan, and the film will be drawn from the first three installments, written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata for Shueisha Inc.

Warner Bros. Pictures Japan made three Japanese-language "Death Note" films. The new pic will be drawn from the manga, not the previous movies.

Vertigo's Roy Lee and Doug Davison will produce with Dan Lin's Lin Pictures and Brian Witten.

The scribes wrote "War of the Gods" for Relativity Media and "Live Bet" for Universal. ends

I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

I didn't care for the Live action Death Note movies at all. I thought it had horrible acting the actors didn't look anything like the characters from the anime. O_O

Hopefully hollywood will make it better, but I doubt it. Dragonball is the perfect example of a good idea for a movie done horribly wrong.
