Death Note Adam Wingard Willem Dafoe Nat Wolff

If you've ever wished that Willem Dafoe would break out his Green Goblin voice from SPIDER-MAN once more, then you're likely already excited about DEATH NOTE for that reason alone. Based upon the popular manga series by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, the upcoming Adam Wingard adaptation follows Light Turner (Nat Wolff), a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook which grants him the power to kill any person simply by writing down their name on the pages. Helping him uncover the mysteries of the Death Note is Ryuk (Willem Dafoe), the bored demon who dropped the Death Note into the human realm in the first place. During Netflix's presentation at San Diego Comic-Con, a new clip from DEATH NOTE was released which showcases a meeting between Light and Ryuk as well as the first name being written down.

"We just put Kenny's name down…and see what happens."

I'm not all that familiar with the DEATH NOTE franchise, but I'm more than willing to check out the film just for Willem Dafoe. Make sure to keep an eye out for our write-up from the DEATH NOTE and BRIGHT Comic-Con panel shortly for more goodies from both movies.

The official synopsis for DEATH NOTE:

Based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power; if the owner inscribes someone’s name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with his new godlike abilities, the young man begins to kill those he deems unworthy of life.

DEATH NOTE will be released on Netflix on August 25, 2017.
