The Bad News: Hollywood Is Remaking Death Note.
The good news: It’s being directed by Shane Black who is also overseeing the script. Shane Black is the dude who directed the super awesome Kiss Kiss Bang Bang starring Robert Downey Jr.
I’m not sure how I feel about this yet. I mean, on one hand, it should be cool to see what a live-action adaptation of the manga would look like with a Hollywood budget, but on the other hand, there’s already the manga, and the anime, and the Japanese live-action versions. Does Hollywood really need their own version? It’s almost like saying all the other versions weren’t good enough or something.
