The Duffer Brothers will develop a new live-action adaption of ‘DEATH NOTE’ for Netflix..
Their newly found company Upside Down Pictures will be responsible for the project
A new live action series adaptation of Death Note,the Japanese manga and anime series originally written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata. The original focuses on a bright teenager who discovers a mysterious black notebook that gives him supernatural power over life and death, the latter caused by writing a person’s name in the book. The teen becomes intoxicated with power as he decides to cleanse the world of undesirables, as a law enforcement team tries to stop him. Netflix made a film adaptation in 2017, but this will be an entirely new take.
