I'm looking forward to the movie just to see what its like!

However, I'm not sure about having Zac Efron as Light. I think physically he looks like Light but just from seeing other movies he's in I don't think he can pull of the twisted, manipulating, scheming character Light is.

If Zac is cast as light, all the high school musical fangirls will flood the anime fandom. And then we're doomed.

They'll just morph into fujoshi

90% of the time, they butcher it and screw up royally. Let's hope this movie is part of the 10% that isn't butchered. If they do butcher it, I will write its name in my movie edition Death Note and tell everyone I know to treat it like a plague.

I agree that this Zac guy looks similar to Light, but Light's personality is extremely twisted and dark. I doubt this guy can pull it off unless he really watches the show and reads the comic, maybe watching The Omen a few times might help since Damien is similar to Light in terms of personality. The maniacal part of Light is almost impossible to pull off. For the poor guy playing as L, I send him my sympathy. L is unique in every sense of the word.

@Masami Akane: Don't set your hopes too high or you will probably be disappointed. Most Japanese-American conversions end with the American conversion being a horrible mess that makes a train derailment look great in comparison.

UPDATE (after almost a year)

Shane Black has been brought aboard the live-action adaptation of the manga series Death Note as a director, Deadline reports.

The series, which is collected in 13 volumes and was a bestseller in Japan, was written by Tsugumi Ohba and artist Takeshi Obata and centers around highschooler Light Yagami who finds a book called the Death Note which has the power to kill anyone whose name is written within it.

Black is best known as a screenwriter, responsible for Lethal Weapon, The Monster Squad and The Last Boy Scout (among others). He also made his directing debut with 2005's Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, for which he also provided the script.

Confirmed for shit.

gosh...I heard of's gonna be a nightmare unless they somehow magically pull it off
which I highly doubt they'll be able to do and I really can't see zac as a cold calculating genius serial killer...he'll probably turn it into some ....
