"Iron Man 3" Director Comments on Hollywood "Death Note"

Crunchyroll: ''Looks like the Hollywood adaptation of Death Note is still in play. Speaking with Bleeding Cool, Iron Man 3 director (and Leathal Weapon writer) Shane Black addressed the subject of upcoming projects. "Right now I’ve got this thing at Warner Bros. called Death Note that I like a lot. It’s a Japanese Manga that’s very tense and really cool."

Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata's suspense manga series has previously been adapted into an anime and Japanese live-action movie series.''

Could be good since Death Note is easy to do into live action. I just wonder if they will make the cast fully grown or not.

What do you mean by easy to do??? Create a good atmosphere, plot and tension in the level of the anime series is a very big task and i don't think Hollywood can accomplish that level of quality, they better leave the anime world like it it is cause for sure that movie will suck big time if they touch it.

Well the Death Note live action movie was pretty good. I'm just saying it can be easier to do since its more thriller and mystery like. If its like a battle shounen you can hang it up because its to hard.

No just no, if Hollywood touches it, it's gunna suck. They've already butchered too many of my fave tv shows and film memories growing up with awful remakes. I rank this as up there with the potential Oldboy hollywood makeover that thankfully got canned.

If you're talking about the Oldboy that Spike Lee is directing, that's still happening.

I'm sorry but aiBreeze is right. They screwed up Dragonball Z, Tekken, Street Fighter, Speed Racer, Astro Boy, and even Avatar: The Last Airbender. THAT was written by Americans and they still screwed it up. We could at least be on the fence about this, especially a series this beloved.

While I agree, Hollywood has also done a lot of comic book movies right, many of which are not superhero related though most are. While there's always cause for concern with adaptions, it's also presumptuous to assume it will be screwed up.

oldboy was pretty sick sometimes japan goes to far dont even know why it was so trivial in the end. if what you did happend and is real dont think you should have th right to get revenge on someone especially if you were in the wrong.

aiBreeze1276d ago

Don't worry, the American version will probably far more viewer friendly no doubt. Also, it's a Korean movie, not Japanese.
