So writers Vlas and Charles Parlapanides are pennnig an American remake of Death Note for Vertigo FilmsDeath Note.

Discuss

(Any one you want to see acting in certain roles?
People seem to want Zac Ephron for Light. I don't know how he acts so I can't say anything but aesthetically I can see it.)

----------------
Personally I dislike Death Note so I don't care but I love to hear the righteous indignation of anime fans.


(don't know if this has been posted)

EDIT: OOPS MESSED UP ON THE POLL. BUT NO = NO

As far as I know any movie that is based on games, books have s**ked a lot ( except for some exceptional ones like LOTR - 11 Oscars, Narnia, Eragon, Resident Evil. ).
I think this will go the same path as the general lot. Those who have not read it may like it but I presume the manga community may be disappointed in majority.
Anyway, who am I to judge it before watching it ? bigrazz

If Zac Efron plays as L, I will kill myself! dead I will turn emo. Seriously he's no good to play a serious investigator like L and he's too preppy for that role. When girls see him, they think of High school musical which is gay, no offense that's what i think. I'm a death note fan so I will watch the American version just take that horrid guy out of the movie. eyes

Anyone is ok to play L, by my standards, as long as they are not Zac. People who want Zac as L are stupid. He's not the right actor for him. As for Light, he shouldn't play him either. biggrin

I meant to say Light sorry >____<;;

I think that someone made a good point if he wants to be taken seriously as an actor he should act in a completely different type of character. That said I don't know about his acting as I've never seen HSM

--------------------
@Nashnir ~ I thought Eragon sucked but I never read the book so I probably would have thought those did too.
And that a good attitude to go with. Until I see a bit I won't know

I think Johnny Depp is more suited for L. As for Kira, maybe, just maybe by a reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllllll long shot and I emphasize maybe again Zac can play Kira. But definately not one of my first picks.

Ugh... I don't even know how to respond to this. I have a very bad feeling about this. Why can't they just leave Death Note alone?

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Right now, I sort of wish that Death Notes were real and that I had one.

EW!! Dx

The fact that Zac Effron is even mentioned to play as a character is a disgrace!

I know it won't be good, but at least cast an unkown actor to play L. DDx

Well, I know it's hopeless to even consider it, but I do hope it's good.

Shut up smarty-pants!

But now that I actually looked, did anybody else laugh when Red Hot Chili Peppers started playing in the commercial imbedded in the livejournal?

someone a little younger than johnny depp for L, but definately a similar person. his face as edwards scissorhands would be perfect, i decree. I'd like too see someone tall and lanky as light, kinda like the joker (in the comics, not jack nickolson)
