Warner Bros to make English language adaption of Death Note

In the “lets hold our breath and hope it doesn’t suck file” come a new entry from Warner Bros as Variety is reporting that Nat Wolff (The Fault In Out Stars, Paper Towns) has signed on to star in Warner Bros. English-language adaptation of Death Note. Originally written by Tsugumi Ohbaand and illustrated by Takeshi Obata this translation will see Wolff play “a student [Light Yagami] who discovers a supernatural notebook that allows him to kill anyone simply by writing the victim’s name.

Now Death Note has a lot more to it than that and if you haven’t watched it your really should. I recommend the Anime version as my personal favorite. You can read all about it by clicking on the link a few lines up.

Early predictions from Cult Faction suggest the entire point may be missed.
