Netflix has just given a full trailer and a featurette for the upcoming film adaptation of iconic manga series “Death Note”.
Directed by Adam Wingard know for “The Guest” & “You’re Next” the story follows a high school student played by Nat Wolff and his supernatural notebook. If the owner writes someone’s name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. He is hunted down by an unusual federal agent.
Also starring Willem Dafoe, Margaret Qualley, Keith Stanfield, Paul Nakauchi, and Shea Whigham.
Expect the global release on Netflix August 25th.
Death Note was previously adapted to live action in Japan. This version was more faithful to the original story but I can't wait to see what Netflix do with it.
