Gus Van Sant Replaces Shane Black as Director of "Death Note"

Posted: July 9th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Gus Van Sant Replaces Shane Black as Director of "Death Note"Submit Comment
Three years ago, it was revealed that Warner Bros hired Shane Black (Iron Man 3) to direct a live-action adaptation of the Japanese manga series "Death Note."

But Black has recently signed on to direct a "Predator" sequel, and in the process, dropped out of "Death Note." The studio quickly started looking for his replacement, and now comes word that Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, Milk) has signed on to direct.

"Death Note" revolves around Light, a bright student who stumbles across a mystical notebook that has the power to kill any person whose name he writes in it. Light decides to launch a secret crusade to rid the streets of criminals. Soon, he finds himself pursued by a famous FBI criminal profiler known only by the alias L.

Love the original Japanese anime and live action version. Hollywood most likely will f*ck this up

I think the last anime Hollywood tried to turn into a live action movie was the Last Airbender...and that's bout all I've got to say bout that.

Although I absolutely LOVE this Anime. I just don't see how they can make it into one movie without completely bastardizing the brevity and characterization that this this show spends so much time fleshing out. It's a story that simply works better as a series, not something to be condensed into 2 hours... We will wait and see I suppose.

only way a western adaptation would work for deathnote would be a series on hbo not a 2 hour mashup clusterf*ck of a movie
