The Guest and You're Next Director Adam Wingard Wants A DEATH NOTE

| No comment

News broke that director Adam Wingard will be tackling Death Note for Warner Bros. He previously directed You’re Next and The Guest, which were both surprisingly good and entertaining horror movies. He is scheduled to direct The Woods for Lionsgate next before handling Death Note.

I’m a big fan of Death Note. I’ve read the manga, watched the anime and the Japanese live-action adaptation trilogy. Although Adam Wingard only has a couple of movies under his belt, I think he’s a good choice to handle arguably one of the most popular series in Japan. His style might compliment the psychotic structure of Death Note that has made it so popular. It’s not so much a horror genre; rather it’s a smart suspense thriller. As long as he follows the source material, the outcome might be a homerun, especially with the superior special effects that only Hollywood can produce.

Check out the original Death Note anime trailer below to give you an idea of the series’ awesomeness.

Death Note centers on a student who discovers a supernatural notebook that allows him to kill anyone by writing the victim’s name who then decides to cleanse the world of whom he deems evil. The student is tracked by a reclusive police officer with a cat-and-mouse game ensuing.
