Deathnote 2016 cast revealed

Shonen Jump magazine has revealed the main casts for the Death Note 2016 live-action film…
Sosuke Ikematsu (Higen from The Last Samurai) as Ryuzaki.
Masahiro Higashide (Hideo Shimada – Parasyte) as Tsukuru Mishima
Masaki Suda (Philip – Kamen Rider W) as Yūgi Shion.
In the film, Ryuzaki(Ikematsu) is L’s successor and a world-famous detective. While Tsukuru Mishima(Higashide) is an investigator pursuing the Death Notes. Whilst Yugi Shion(Suda) is a cyber terrorist who reveres Kira. The film will be a “forbidden sequel” to the two earlier live-action Death Note films.
The film takes us to the present day where successors of both L and Kira/Light Yagami wages a war over the 6 Death Notes on Earth. The “Six Note Rule” will be a crucial plot element. The rule states that up to 6 Death Notes may exist in the human world simultaneously. Meaning there may be up to 6 Shinigamis on Earth. Until this time, the Rule was only used in the manga while all other adaptations ruled it out.
The film is directed by Shinsuke Sato (Gantz, Gantz: Perfect AnswerLibrary Wars). The official website also announce the film is set to open in Japan this fall.
