    Death Note Live Action Movies

    Well, it turns out Death Note is going to be made into two live action movies. You can read more about this here:

    - Obata Takeshi Art Book "blank et noir" will be released on May 2. There will be seven extra items such as figure and copied original art. Limited version, DEATH BOX, will be released at same time.
    This sounds interesting to me and I can't wait to see them.

    Don't worry, somebody will.

    I'm sure it will be great. I've always thought the premise of Death Note would have made a compelling script for a live-action movie, so I'm not surprised at all to see this happen.

    Now for casting news and so on.

    I wonder... how much production work will this thing have in it? It has the potential to be really cool, but I have a feeling it's going to fall flat

    Well, you just click the tv and then click the button to put it on and it works for me

    But it isn't a very inspiring trailer, you see Light and a flying apple and hear some weird noises...

    Re: Death Note Live Action Movies & Other News

    Oh yeah, I meant to mention this: Page 94 mentioned that the leading role (Light) is Fujiwara Tatsuya, and there's apparently going to be TWO installments: the first one is in June and the second one is in October.

    Don't know much about how Japanese do these movies, but I guess it's going to be kind of like Back to the Future movies (the second & third sequels done simultaeously and then released in the same year.)

    Have you tried to look at a certain flatscreen black tv at the middle-right part of the room, Miso?

    Oh, and you're not dumb just blind!
    *apologizes and doesn't find him funny himself either...*

    It looks more like a computer, it's at the far right of the screen, Misa.

    Btw, yeech. They probably should have just done an animation because that doesn't look like Light at all. Heh. Drawbacks of drawing their characters like Westerners all the time, I guess...

    Wow, even a ß in there! I'm very impressed! If I was hearing I bet my ears would be curling about right now

    Well, Miso's german, so the ß is standard on their keyboards, i don't have a button for it....

    Anyway, i like the way Light looks as a person, even if it would have been a western actor, we wouldn't have been able to get used to him very quick either... btw, did you see Misamisa!! Supercute

    It's a tv, really, but a flatscreen one

    The trailer doesn't show anything... too bad... for those that know japanese, can you check what the names of the actors are for me (us)?

    Re: Death Note Live Action Movies & Other News

    LoL, I just realized I called Miso 'Misa' in my last post. Oops.

    I think I must've missed Misamisa. I'm really not expecting much from these movies at all, I wish they had gone for the anime version now.

    I bet you guys anything, though, that when Death Note becomes more known over in America, Hollywood will jump at a chance to do their own version of the story too. It's a REALLY good premise for a movie, not just a manga.

    True, DeathNote follows the 'realism' path, only adding some gods and the note itself, but it's quite easy to make into a movie... the only thing that would pose a problem would be HOW many chapters and what would you punt in the movie.... I assume the two movies together show the story up to chapter 60 or something? As it's the natural start of 'part 2'...
