Adam Wingard Will Direct the Manga Adaption ‘Death Note’

The six years in the making Manga adaption of the anime series Death Note is finally off ground and has found its new helmer. Adam Wingard will be directing the long awaited Warner Bros. anime adaption.

Adam Wingard is a name associated with dark and horror storylines, last year’s The Guest was exceptionally made and the 2011’s You’re Next was terrifying. So we believe that Warner Bros. have played the smartest move by adding Wingard to their latest anime project.

No one can do this specific venture better than Wingard, considering his credentials and experience he is the right man for this kind of a movie.

The plot of Death Note circles around the story of a young boy who stumbles upon a creepy notebook that allows him to kill anyone he wishes by simply writing their name on the pages.

He decides to eradicate all evil that moves around him but gets caught up in a cat-mouse chase with a detective who has been following him.

Masi Oka, Jason Hoffs, Dan Lin and Roy Lee will be producing the forthcoming feature which was adapted as a movie previously in Japan. Jeremy Slater has written the first draft of Death Note and will be completing the rest soon hopefully. Brian Witten and Doug Davison are the Executive Producers and Niija Kuykendall and Nik Mavinkurve from Warner Bros. will be overseeing the project.

No release date has been announced as of yet but we will keep you posted.
