You heard me, they’re doing it again. Is this going to be another disaster like Dragonball? You be the judge.
And sign petition to not have them cast Zac Effron as Yagami Light… That’s be scary, I almost want to watch just to see how “nice” it’d be though, I wonder if they’ll really cast him, or whether the movie’s really in production right now… D: Oh well, just sign in case I’m wrong.
And woah, Malaysian papers got featured in Wikipedia’s info about the remake. I loled at it ’cause… Yea… Copy and paste this from Wikipedia.
North American Remake
In 2007, the Malaysian paper The Star stated that more than ten film companies in the United States had expressed interest in the Death Note franchise. The American production company Vertigo Entertainment was originally set to develop the remake, with Charley and Vlas Parlapanides as screenwriters and Roy Lee, Doug Davison, Dan Lin, and Brian Witten as producers. On April 30, 2009, Variety reported that Warner Bros., the distributors for the original Japanese live-action films, had acquired the American rights for the remake, with the original screenwriters and producers still attached. The release date is tentatively set for the year 2011.
