I hope the American remake goes all the way back to the manga, and doesnt throw any of the "I Love You", sex, dreams allways come true with hard work, excessive useless violence, guns, or any of the other BULLSHIT that makes American films so unbearable.
If they do this, it sould be good, even if it does bomb the box office because Americas minds have been raped and purged of good movies since Indiana Jones 1. Come on, Lethal Weapon 4? Maxtix 3? Guns guns, sex sex, "I Love You, thats why", "NOOOOO", explosion, roll credits.

At first I began to type a long paragraph in response to some people's posts but then I decided not to. I came to the conclusion that some people are just plain retarded.

Oh really? That sounds like a lot of manga out there. That is not just in American films it's actually in films from other countries as well. In fact all of those are in all forms of entertainment.

This is going off topic though. To stay on topic:
Again, I'm against the remake and those pictures posted made me chuckle.

One thing the Americans will surely never be able to do is Kira's famous laugh. >.>

I dont know why manga publishers and anime translators feel the need to americanize everything (why i hate dubbed anime). its just making the readers/watchers more ignorant to other cultures' entertainment.

very true. i like many people am a hater of dubbed anime.
i will watch it cause i like death note. but, i can see myself cringing like i do if i have to listen to english dub. i will probely only get up to 15 min and have to stop watching

OMG! I really hope they don't do that! It will so kill the anime and manga of Death Note! And WTF are they thinking wanting Zac Ephron in the movie?!?! In High school musical 2 it was like he looked like he belonged in boy band or something, and he was orange That is just so wrong! I really don't want them to make another movie of Death Note. I really think they should just leave it alone, the movie that was already made wasn't as good as the anime and manga to begin with, I dread to see what the Americans will do to it *shudder* 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


Eragon wasn't that good....the book was way better, the movie was like a copy of LOTR that failed.

Quote from Specialnote
Zac Efron is the only possible Light Yagami.

Just watch the first episode of the anime. When Light talks with Ryuk about becoming the new god, he has the same "stupid" happy look on his face that Zac has. I mean, if it were possible,... he is/was already Kira, used the Death Note already, but somehow lost that part of his memory and ended up playing a role in High School Musical, (or that's just the price for having used the notebook.)

I don't know if he could play evil, but he is a good actor. But I know for sure, that he will be a better Light, than the Japanese live-action one, Tatsuya Fujiwara, though the acting at the end of the second movie wasn't that bad.

And Zac has a perpect body, not some strange looking body (Tatsuya Fujiwara).


I cannot even believe you just said that...

God first off I don't like the idea of an American version. For one, there's already a perfectly good japanese one. Two, Americans usually ruin things like this. And three, uh its set in JAPAN. Raito and L are JAPANESE. Its in godfucking Tokyo!! I mean, I got kinda pissed at Memoirs of a Geisha b/c everyone spoke english but then again the novel was written by an non-japanese person. But this is an already Japanese thing, and don't get me I'm not some 'japanese purist' I get mad about this stuff no matter what culture/country it is. (I loved letters from Iwo Jima b/c it was in Japanese)

And please. Having that douche Zac Efron play Light would make my eyes bleed. I hate that High School Musical shit and all the little disney channel tards. Anyone who likes that crap-pile of shitty acting, plot, dialouge, ect should be immediatly sent to rehab.

Personally, Death Note is okay, and I like the Japanese movie. And I'd like to keep things like that.


Are you even Japanese? L isn't japanese, btw, he's half japanese half something-foreign, says volume 13. The live action was absolutely HORRIBLE. HORRIBLE! It made my eyes bleed! At least us americans could do Ryuk good, at LEAST?!

The acting was shit, everyone was too frigging cute, and they totally got L wrong. L isn't supposed to be attractive in the first place. And HSM is good in its own respective way. Its targeted at elementary kids, you freak. Why did you even watch it if you hate disney so much? bigrazz

Memoirs of a Geisha was awesome, as well, and got very good reviews. Just because someone isn't from a certain country doesn't mean that they can't appreciate it, or share their customs and like it.

Like how you watch anime D:

Aw everybody hates Zac Efron. laugh

(Based on HSM.?) Have you (yes you! O.o) seen his other movies such as Miracle Run? He played an autistic kid and that was some pretty good acting IMO. eyes

Anyway, I'll probably see the remake out of curiosity so I'm not really excited. I haven't seen the Live Actions so I couldn't really say OMGUHSDIHSHD I <3 THE LIVE ACTION WHY DO THEY HAVE TO MESS IT UP!!1!!!!11111

roll eyes

dude arch all the ones you named were either crap or were never books or games first (cept for lotr and narnia) i mean eragon shouldn't even be considered a book adaption more like a horrible book remake. God i want to to kill that director he messed the movie up so bad and now thier isnt even a chance of eldest coming out. Also how could you forget to add harry potter to your list i mean it was the best book to movie adaption in our times.

anyways im not to worried about this, like america's planning to do a dragon ball Z live action which would be worth going to watch to either see how badly they failed or how cool it came out

p.s. this zac effron person looks more like kira rather then light

arrrrrrrrrrrrggggggg why are they planning to mock the film industry. Gods they're planning on making a Dragon Ball Z. Why is Hollywood going to the dumps like Dragonlord said they messed up badly with eragon. *sigh* if they were smart they would've chosen to to make a gundum live action no series of gundum live action.
