Warner Bros. has made official moves to make a movie adaptation for popular horror manga Death Note movie with Adam Wingard. Shane Black was originally set to direct but now Wingard is the man. Jeremy Slater (Fantastic Four (2015), The Lazarus Effect (2015)) has written the first draft that Wingard will use.
The Death Note series follows a young high school student named Light Yagami who acquires a book which has the power to kill anyone whose name is written in the book. He has a Shinigami by his side who takes joy in what events unfold. Light also has to elude the FBI, a really great horror anime series to make a movie franchise from.
