American film director Adam Wingard, who worked on the adaptation of Japanese anime/manga series "Death Note," opened up something on what fans can expect from the movie. Wingard teases that because of the film's cultural setting, the movie may contain tons of violence, bloodshed and bareness of flesh, which is definitely for adult viewing only.
In an interview with Screenrant, he revealed that it was like having the same kind of weird thriller tone from his movie "The Guest," but he assured that "Death Note" can notably keep the audience motivated and stirred.
Since Wingard is a director with a remarkable sense of imagination that can be felt in each one of his films, it is said that "Death Note" may sound more gore or violent than other "Death Note" films. He quickly built his name in the American movie industry as he directed one of the most thrilling horror movies this decade, titled "You're Next."
Despite Netflix's lack of a rating system, Wingard guaranteed the people by saying, "It was my first live-action anime thing, and therefore I have the freedom to just turn it loose sometimes and just do some crazy and weird scenarios." He also added that "While filming the movie, it was like the experience of working on another realm of weird live-action anime."
"Death Note" would be led by Natt Wolf, one of the casts of "The Fault in Our Stars" movie. The story revolves around a high school student named Light Yagami who picked a mysterious-looking notebook and discovers that it can give him a supernatural power to cast death just by writing the name.
Netflix's "Death Note" is said to be released sometime in 2017.
